Sofia Kozhushko


Becoming a part of the beauty industry was a recent, life-changing moment in my life. I had always secretly dreamt of an occupation connecting art, beauty, and aesthetics. Naturally I steered toward painting, but was influenced by family and my life in Ukraine and my first career was in linguistics/languages/translations/literature. When I came to the U.S. a few years ago, it was bittersweet to leave behind my family and that work. Starting my life from scratch, I recognized the chance to start doing something I had dreamt of and started my focus on cosmetology. The beauty industry turned out to be my real passion. Working with people and making them feel happy about themselves is something that has a huge meaning to me. This is a very rewarding job but also very artistic at the same time. I appreciate the chance that brought me where I am now. I have an enormous amount of energy and passion to share my art with my clients!
