Alumni Spotlight: Alina Capitanio Returns to Share Expertise
In a heartwarming Alumni Spotlight, Alina Capitanio, a distinguished 2023 graduate of OSTC-Northeast, recently graced the campus with her presence.
She’s currently making waves at Alex Emelio Salons in Birmingham and Royal Oak; Alina generously conducted a Blow-Dry Demonstration for both the AM and PM Cosmetology students.
Reflecting on her experience, Alina shared, "OSTC-Northeast provided a good, early start. I was able to complete the program while still in high school and save a lot of money. Eventually, I would like to further my career as a representative for L'Oreal or another beauty company."
The Cosmetology students expressed their gratitude to Alina for dedicating her entire day to their education and growth. Plans are underway for her return to assist with industry evaluations.
