My name is Mireya Correa, I'm married and have 3 children. My family is my world and the reason to achieve my dreams. I came to Grand Rapids 20 years ago and my goal was to study, because in my home country I couldn't due to lack of money and resources . With my family support ,In 2004 I got my cosmetology license, 5 years later I earned my GED Diploma and my Cosmetology Instructor License. In 2014 I opened "MC Beauty Salon" where I work, as well as teach and help people to reach their goals.
