March 5, 2022 Our first recipient of the Lotus Scholarship, has persevered through a life of crime and struggles. She has worked hard on overcoming her background. Now, as a mother of 2 sons, she made the decision to stop spending money on the negatives, and put it towards becoming a beauty professional, with proper licensing and credentials. She took great initiative in organizing the salon, and has been there when help was needed. With a charisma and smile that reminds me of my sister Olivia, she is now one step closer to her goal of inspiring young women and mentoring the next generation of beauty professionals. Congratulations Allison Plewa.
