We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamila Yacinthe and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jamila, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
THE END GOAL !Easier said than done, right? Especially if you’re uncertain about what your goals are or what they should look like in the first place. My goal has always been to be a business owner. In a few months I will have finally fulfilled the education and experience requirements to be a Licensed Esthetician, which I’m very determined on passing. I’m aiming to make that perfect experience for consumers of the waxing community. I am very passionate about the career that I have chosen, and for me working with clients to improve their skin is a rewarding profession that doesn’t feel like work. Clients depend on an esthetician to create and maintain professional boundaries and a positive atmosphere so they can relax and enjoy their treatments. Every step of that keeps me pumped about my profession, so where do i want to be be professionally by the end of my career ? HAPPY ! yes happy I say happy because most people who have the best career for them are happy! Being able to provide services and keeping up with all the changes that come along with the beauty/self- care industry in a space where my clients and I can create the perfect atmosphere to get pampered and most importantly RELAX.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The Waxed Peach strives to provide a heavenly experience by providing a relaxing environment in which we can create the perfect atmosphere for each individual client. We specialize in body waxing and facial services. The Waxed Peach brings creativity to transform our clients into glowing peaches we aim to please with honesty, respect and integrity. After years of being a consumer I’ve realized that i would like to bring some change to the industry making the experience special and affordable. I wouldn’t say it was easy but I did plan every step of the way and stuck with my goals, I’ve learned that when you truly have a passion and/or vision for something there’s nothing that can stop you from reaching it even if you try to stop some higher being tells you to keep moving ! I want the world to know its never to late to get started not just with a career but anything you want in life !

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
