Join us as we celebrate our November Student of the Month, Najadanika “Naja” Simmons!
Naja was chosen for many reasons, but the main one is she’s an amazing person inside and out! Naja has consistently maintained a 100% or above in attendance throughout her schooling. She studies hard, works hard, and always has a smile on her face with an infectious laugh.
When Naja was asked about why she chose Aveda, she simple said “to change my life.” Naja believed that signs were telling her to go back to school for cosmetology, and the school to go to was Aveda. When she walked into Aveda for the first time, she felt like she was home. She felt Aveda was welcoming, everyone was friendly, and she could excel in her education at the school.
Naja graduated from Bassfield High School in Bassfield, Mississippi. After high school Naja maintained a job and started her studies in law at Southwest Mississippi Community College. After a year of studying law, Naja wanted to pursue her passion for hair. After she graduates from Aveda and receives her cosmetology license, she will go back to school to complete her law degree.
Thank you Naja for always lifting our spirits and making us smile!
