Dora Sanchez has always had a dream of becoming a cosmetologist. She would often experiment on doll hair when she was young. However, she has had a lot of setbacks and struggles. Her father, who was an immigrant from El Salvador, passed away when she was only 5 years old. At a very young age, she would have to care for her brothers while their mom worked 2 to 3 jobs. Sometimes Dora would even have to miss school to take care of her younger brothers. While she was in high school, she would occasionally go work with her mother cleaning hotel rooms so they could provide for the family. Dora is excited to become a licensed cosmetologist and one day open her own salon. She is excited to have a mentor to help her achieve her goals.
