On all my classes, I try to explain that in this business, 1% is talent and 99% is work, practice and discipline. Some students with great talent can master the technique easily but only if they make an effort and if they practice. I’ve met may such students who often give up or they do things their own way – which is often a mistake. I’ve met those students who did not manage to draw eyebrows but they had a goal and strong will to succeed. After a while, through counselling and a Craft Master App, the progress of those who devoted their attention to practice on skin simulation and who tried to correct the smallest errors is evident. Their progress makes me very proud because I know that I did tell them not to give up in vain when something doesn’t go as planned, and sometimes, we are simply not motivated to devote ourselves to something, and we should not force ourselves to do something because it is our homework but we should be interested and love our vocation. It was more difficult for some students than others but we cannot compare someone who has all time of this world and does not practice or someone who wants to pass and put its Certificate on a wall – this is not the point of our education.
No diploma is valid if you don’t know how to work. On the other hand, I have students with full-time jobs, they are wives and mothers with 3 or more children and they manage to find the time to practice at midnight, even after a tough working day. This is what we call the love for work because thetime, place or your current situation is not what it matters for you to succeed. By looking at all my Artists, Royals, Master Assistants and even Masters, I feel great pride in succeeding to get them to the right track and to make them successful at what they do. They are my true inspiration and external example to those who believe that they cannot do it but they actually don’t want to do it.
