Samra, Shauna
Please, introduce yourself!

I’m Shauna Samra. I started classes in January 2016 and am scheduled to graduate in January 2017. I’m 23 and from Methuen, Mass. I moved to Ohio in June 2015 when my boyfriend and I decided this would be a better place to raise our son. Columbus has a reasonable cost of living and a great quality of life.

What is your favorite part of coming to school every day?
The hands on training and learning new cuts and techniques!

What have you learned about yourself during your time at Salon Institute?
I have learned that I am finally in school for something I enjoy! I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year brings!

20160113 Out N About_Shauna_2What did you do before you decided to launch your career at Salon Institute?
I went to a couple different colleges and experimented with nursing, teaching, communications — the list goes on. There wasn’t anything that really peaked my interest until now!

Tell us about your family. Are you married? Have kids? Have furbabies? How old are they? How long have you been with your significant other? Tell me, tell me!
I am in a relationship with the love of my life, Ryan! We have been together for almost 2 years. We have a beautiful son turned 1 year old in February. It’s funny because our anniversary is on Feb. 19 and our son was born the day after. I thought that was pretty exciting!

Describe your education at Salon Institute in 3 words
Fun, informative, exciting

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would love to own my own business specializing in hair and makeup. I want to do wedding parties and big events as well.  Another thing I think about is being a runway stylist. I think working behind the runway and for different magazines would be so fun! Maybe I can do both!

What makes your heart sing?
My son!

What is at the top of your bucket list?
To graduate

What piece of advice would you give yourself on your first day of cosmetology college at Salon Institute?
The first day is not what the other 365 will be like. 20160113 Out N About_Shauna_1

Name 3 foods that always in your fridge.

What do you want your legacy to be here at school?
I would say just my eagerness to learn and drive to be the best!

Anything else we HAVE to know about you?
I love to draw and paint! Art is important to me. Probably another reason why I wanted to go to beauty school!

Words to live by …. go!
The road of opportunities is endless!
