“Right after enrolling with QC Makeup Academy, my area was put into lockdown due to COVID-19. I was devastated, thinking that my learning would be put on hold. But thanks to QC, that was not the case! I was able to complete my assignments on myself so that I didn't fall behind or risk being near anyone who could be sick. I had daily access to my tutor, the QC staff, and my fellow community. There was always someone there to help with any questions I had and assist me along the way. Thanks to QC, I was able to successfully graduate from THREE courses in 2020!”
