"Our campus invited a group of children with autism to come in for a beauty day. The boy who I performed a manicure on was autistic and deaf, but had a smile that warmed my heart more than anything. I cannot recall doing something so fulfilling and heart-warming in all my life. Thank you for this opportunity!" Hillary Hunter, Marinello Schools of Beauty Palmdale
