     One of the biggest things that can stress a high school senior or even a high school junior is the idea of what they will do for the rest of their lives. Figuring out a career before entering college can eliminate a big burden and allow for a stress-free start to ones future.

    A senior at Pocomoke High school by the name of Destinee Johnson, has attended the Worcester County Technical School  where she spends  half of her day and the other half of the day at Pocomoke.See the source image

At the Technical School Johnson, is apart of the Cosmetology program in which she has gained experience with chemicals, hair color and dying, using acrylic nails and styling them, roller sets for hair, perms for hair, and pedicures.

    “I am very thankful for the ability to have been able to go to the Tech School for these past couple of years and now into  my senior year because I now have the experience with many things I will need to work with in the future,” said Johnson.

    Johnson stated, “I personally really enjoy Cosmetology and all the opportunities that accompany it because I enjoy seeing people excited about what I have been able to do for them.” “Doing what I love and seeing people happy about it is all I could ever ask for and more,” Johnson also stated.

    Destinee Johnson just recently passed her written portion of the test for her Cosmetology license and in two weeks she will take the hands on portion of the test and hopefully receive her license for Cosmetology.   

    Johnson is also a part of the ROTC program at Pocomoke High School and after high school she has made the most honorable decision to either enter into our nation’s air force or marine corps.

    “I have truly enjoyed being in the ROTC program here at Pocomoke High School and I just know in my heart that I truly want to protect our country.” said Johnson. Destinee Johnson also commented on the fact that, “Entering into the air force or the marines will force me to push harder than I ever have before, and I can’t to be a part of something bigger.”

     With several big plans for the future Destinee Johnson seems to have her future all figured out.

    “By hopefully getting my Cosmetology license, I have a plan B if my other plans do not work out the way I plan, and that takes the stress off of my shoulders with graduation approaching because I have my plans set,” said Johnson.
