Dear ( CEO/ BUSINESS OWNER/MANAGER)
My name is Kentraya Johnson, I am in the process of owning my own nail academy this upcoming summer 2021. The nail industry is my passion, I am currently enrolled in Lovett Beauty School in Jonesboro Georgia to become a licensed instructor. I am going to open up my own nail academy t be able to properly educate men and women who are interested in the nail technology field. I temporary relocated to Atlanta so that I could attend their nail instructor program so I could come back home (Louisville, Ky) and legally pass on the knowledge. Ten years ago when I started doing nails, there was no such thing as a nail school, there were beauty schools, however the cosmetology instructors only had about 20 hours of nail knowledge, compared to 750 hours, and so much has changed in the present day; you basically had to YouTube and practice on your own until you perfected your craft. I want to eliminate not having a nail community to refer to when you have questions or simply just wanting to be educated on the history and techniques. I have been working on my curriculum for my future student and started securing the proper supplies needed for my students to be successful. We are going to grant two students with free scholarships each term to attend Nailchella Nail Academy.
I previously hosted a nail competition this past march in Louisville, Ky; titled “Nailchella”. I plan to continue with my brand name “nailchella” going forward with the school name as well. The competition consist of amateur and seasonal nail techs competing against each other for a cash grand prize along with bragging rights. The scholarship amount awarded was $1,000 for our competition in Kentucky. There were so many aspiring nail techs that attended the competitition that needed proper schooling, it quickly reminded me the lack of professional knowledge my hometown had in this field.
Although it is solely my dream it is my hope that your corporation/business can help me with sponsorship for my nail academy this upcoming summer. I am hoping to raise at least $45,000. We appreciate your time and support, with your support are students will feel empowered as they become productive citizens who inevitably contribute forward to society what they received. Any amount that you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. If granted a donation I would like to display advertisement of your company for promotion. Regardless of the amount you choose to give, your company name will be in our curriculum and throughout the property building (banners, handouts, etc.) and you’ll be included in the press release that we will publish on our website.
Being a single mom of three, a full time student, and a part time nail tech, we simply cannot do this alone again, this is why I am asking for your help. I thank you so much for your time and your generosity. If you have any questions comments or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at 502-795-9116.
