Jo Mousselli’s Insights on Education

Fortunately, I grew up in a middle class family where education is highly valued as well as expected. I am also an immigrant from Syria, where despite the fact that the country is led by a dictator, higher education for women is also valued and expected.

My father immigrated to the United States when I was five years old.  He always reinforced to us that he brought his family here in order to escape Syrian dictatorship and to provide us with freedoms and opportunities that we would not otherwise have, had we stayed in Syria. He also reinforced to us that we have the advantage of cultivating the best of both cultures in order to be the best that we can be.

While growing up in Houston Texas, I had the privilege of touring many areas of the world, including less fortunate countries, where individuals, especially women, did not have the freedom and/or the opportunities to pursue higher education in order to maximize their personal and family financial freedom, happiness and success. I saw the correlation between education and achieving success.  Women that were educated were not only more successful, they were also more autonomous.

Right after high school, at the age of 17, I chose to get married to a Syrian husband and I resided in Syria for the first seven years of our marriage.

While residing in Syria, I witnessed my Syrian female cousins attend college to become pharmacists, engineers, doctors, and dentists. While I was very motivated to go to college, my reading and writing skills in Arabic were not college level and there were no options for me to attend English university.  I focused instead on using my English skills to help others that were learning English as a second language.

Seven years later, my husband and I moved our family to the United States, as my father had done when I was young, to escape Syrian dictatorship and to provide our family with better opportunities.

The first thing that I did when I returned to the United States was to enroll in college. I was a 25 year old mother of four children who ranged from the age of newborn through six years old.

Life became very challenging.  I was raising four children while simultaneously going to school and working as a kindergarten teacher.

Furthermore, my life became much more complicated and much more challenging when I became a single mom. Nevertheless, I took care of my four children, worked, attended Texas Woman’s university, graduated magna cum laude and became a pediatric ICU nurse at Texas Children’s hospital despite the many challenges.

What were the keys to my success, in spite of the challenges?  First of all, I was passionate and committed to being self-reliant.  In addition, I defined specific goals and remained dedicated to accomplishing them.

I always kept my father’s mantra that with dedication, determination, and education, the opportunities in the United States are endless if one chooses to pursue them.

I prioritized and focused. I identified my top goals, and I developed strategies to achieve them.

I prioritized my family’s health (including physical fitness and nutrition) and our education.  Everything else became secondary. I also became resourceful, and consolidated wherever I could without compromise.

My priorities:

  • Nutrition: I knew I didn’t want my children’s diet to suffer, so I cooked nutritional meals daily. Rather than telling children they cannot have certain snacks, I simply didn’t even purchase them.  I also realized that when children get their three meals per day, they are less likely to get hungry and snack in-between.  I often included my children in cooking together.  And, it is true, a family who eats together, stays together.
  • Children’s Education:
    1. Academic education: While living in Syria, I realized that primary school education there was very strong. Children were expected to learn more complex math, reading and science at much younger ages.  They do not pass children from grade to grade unless they master all the skills and objectives for the year.  End of year comprehensive exams were started in kindergarten.  This realization motivated me to work more with my children beginning in preschool and persisting through kindergarten in order to develop their reading, writing and math skills with my goal being that they qualify to be in the gifted and talented programs in elementary school.  I was just as diligent with the kindergarten students that I taught.  I am a believer that most children are smart enough to do above-grade level work if they are challenged to do so by their parents and their teachers, and when, as a result, they are surrounded by children that are also being challenged in the same classroom.  Children’s brains are like sponges and clay, they absorb quickly and can be molded easily. When your child sits in a classroom with other children that are ambitious and challenged, he or she will strive to do as well as the others in the class who also are motivated to learn.  On the other hand, if your child is in an on-level class and is surrounded with children who are not motivated to learn, your child may not be reaching their full potential. Furthermore, when young children are not being challenged and taught the right skills, they are not mature enough to notify their parents. They may have the potential to do higher level work, but will not reach their potential unless their educators and their parents create an environment of opportunities to exceed expectations. Furthermore, it is essential to get them into the habit of completing their assignments and making good grades.

Furthermore, while my children were in school, so was I.  I became their role model – If mom can do it, so can I.  We did homework together, worked on projects together, and we studied together at the kitchen table.

My recommendation: take an active role in your children’s primary education.  After all, they spend half of their childhood in school.

  1. Educational toys and games: Invest in educational toys and games for your children. I discovered that building blocks were great.  Not only are they an excellent investment for those who are on a tight budget, since one box of building blocks can turn into endless numbers of toys, but building blocks encourage children to be creative, resourceful and innovative.  They truly do exercise children’s right and left brains.  The only disadvantage is cleaning up so many pieces.  Perhaps you can designate an area in your home just for building blocks, and of course it’s an opportunity to teach them responsibility of cleaning up after themselves.
  2. Physical fitness and recreational educational activities: With four children and very little spare time, I needed a family activity that everyone can partake in at once. I didn’t have time to shuttle children around from soccer to dance to gymnastics… So, I chose to enroll all of my children in the local neighborhood swim team at a very young age.  If you are working, going to school and raising children on your own, or on a tight income, swimming is great.   Simultaneously, all four were able to attend swim practice and to compete in the swim meets – even the baby – which enabled me to not have to drive four children to different locations every day. I also purchased season passes to our local theme park and Water Park.  Again, this was a family activity that my children and I were all able to participate in and to enjoy while spending time together.  My children and I rode the rollercoasters and went down the water slides together all summer long.

In addition, my brother owned a boat, and my parents had a swimming pool, and we lived close to Lake Conroe.  We spent many weekends together during the summer swimming, waterskiing, grilling hotdogs and marshmallows.  In addition to being a fun and family oriented activity, swimming is a survival skill that I believe every parent should teach their children to master.  I can’t emphasize enough the benefits of swimming and the economies of scale that a family can gain from this one recreational activity.

My Education:

I chose nursing as a professional major because nursing was aligned with one of my two greatest passions – health and beauty – which I believe go hand-in-hand.  I believe that when you look good, you feel good, and vice versa!  I also have a nurturing and caregiving personality, and I have always been fascinated with humanity, and how anatomy and physiology, as well as psychology and society affect our health, our self-esteem, and our happiness.  I researched and discovered that nursing was very holistic in the sense that, in addition to incorporating medical interventions to treat disorders and diseases, nurses treat the entire person holistically – taking into consideration not only how a person’s physical characteristics can lead to health or illness, and how pharmacological interventions can treat those illnesses, nurses also take into consideration how the psychological, social and lifestyle challenges can affect a person’s health, and how those same factors can be used to develop treatment and preventative protocols.  Nurses use the Nursing Process, and we take a holistic approach to assessing, diagnosing and treating individuals holistically through the assessment of physical, pharmacological, psychological, social and lifestyle factors. Then we develop a plan of care that includes interventions that treat those same factors: physical, pharmacological, psychological, social and lifestyle imbalances that result in illness.   We seek to understand and to incorporate preventative and treatment protocols that incorporate how a person deals with and overcomes lifestyle as well as psycho-social, and environmental related problems and challenges, and how those non-physical attributes, factors, and variables can affect their entire well-being including their ability to stay healthy or to recover from illness, and how their medical condition will affect or be affected by their work, their family and their lifestyle.

We strive to prevent and to treat as we assess and consider all aspects of a person’s life – the interconnectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit, social/cultural, relationship, and environment. And we consider how all of these – holistically – affect our health and happiness and the ability to prevent, to treat, and to ultimately overcome disorders and diseases, or to at least be able to cope effectively.

Moreover, the nursing profession was also conducive to being a mother of four.  I knew I would be able to work full-time, part-time, evenings or weekends. And it is always in demand because no computers or machines can replace the care a nurse gives to his/her patient.

Transition to Xtreme Lashes:

When my children were older, I became fortunate enough to follow my second passion: beauty. I again prioritized and focused on my goals to develop a company and industry.

Once again, the investment I made into my education and into my children’s education paid off!!

With my family by my side: my son Maher Daoudi, my daughter Noor Daoudi, my Son Muhammad Daoudi, my brother Ahmad Mousselli, and my husband Martin Dale, we founded Xtreme Lashes by Jo Mousselli®.  Without a blue-print, we created a brand new industry for thousands of women and men to be empowered with rewarding and profitable careers that enable them to empower the lives of thousands more consumers with innovative and high performing beauty products and services that enhance their beauty, self-confidence and happiness – holistically!

Our family business has grown into an extended family of many dedicated and loyal employees, trainers and international franchisees who, as a team, work together to deliver quality products, education, and legendary customer service support while providing opportunities for so many.

Tanya Grace – Scholarship Winner

Congrats to Tanya Grace – our 2014 Scholarship Winner!  We wanted to share Tanya’s story with you.  Welcome to the Xtreme Lashes family Tanya!

Essay:

First, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to even apply for a scholarship with Xtreme Lashes. I feel very privileged.   It is so generous of the company to do this.  My name is Tanya Grace.  I am a licensed cosmetologist in California and now this month in Colorado.  I live in Colorado.   I am applying for a scholarship with Xtreme Lashes because I want to pursue a career as a lash stylist.  I had lashes put on several months ago by a friend of mine, and fell in love with them. They made me feel beautiful and people gave me compliments everywhere I went.  They shaved so much time off of my morning routine.   I started practicing on a doll head and I researched a lot of companies, but I  instantly knew this was for me. I want to help women feel beautiful and good about themselves, and this is the vehicle to do it.  I love make –up and lashes are an extension of that.  I love working with women and ministering to women of all ages through my work.  By doing their make-up their and eyelashes, I feel like I am able to reach them and touch their lives in a deeper more powerful way then just their outside beauty.

I feel I am eligible for the program because it is an extension of what I can already do.  I know I have the heart and ambition.  I am a single mom in Colorado by myself with no support system.  When I came to Colorado I did not continue doing hair for so many reasons, but mainly I needed a steady immediate income.  I had a son to raise completely alone, and needed the health benefits for us as well so I ended up in ‘jobs” not a career. In doing so I gave up the possibility of having my own career.

I was recently laid off of work for the second time in two years. It is devastating.  Someone else in in charge of your life.  They don’t care if you have a roof over your head or if your son is clothed and eating, etc. No severance, waiting for a decision on unemployment etc.  I currently am looking for work, but have found that the jobs out there are paying a lot less and they are hiring younger people to do the same thing.  Side note, I have continued to make-up on the side all of these years, and most recently in June I started doing spray tans.  Neither produce a full time or even a 5 hour-part time income at this time.

During this grueling process of looking for work, I read an amazing book given to me by one of pastors, that led me back to my passions.  Helping women, and making them feel beautiful.  I began to ask myself “why not me?” My desire is to start my own lash business, as a CAREER, not a hobby or a side income!   I want to never have to go through this unemployment again and be afraid.   I want to be in charge of my destiny and put my son through college myself.  I worked with my local workforce center trying to see if I could qualify for financial assistance to obtain more skills by going to the Xtreme Lash School.   It is a very long process and takes months for them to even interview you.  I looked at Xtreme lash school and realized they did not  accept FAFSA,  and then I found the scholarship info on the website and again asked myself “Why not me?”  I am passionate about this business and  I am ready to take classes now,  and hope that I can qualify for financial assistance.   I applied for my reciprocity for my Colorado cosmetology license and after two very long months I have received it.  You have to be licensed in the State of Colorado in order to provide lash extensions.   Now all I need is the education and training from Xtreme Lashes to make this my reality.

This scholarship would enable me to have my own career, have training from the best, and provide a solid and steady income so that I can raise my son. I can help women everywhere feel beautiful. I want to give back to the community and do some work with cancer patients that may not be able to afford these type of services.  I want to minister to them and bless them and give them hope.

As an Xtreme Lash stylist, I can have my own business for myself and not be by yourself.  The company cares about me.   The ongoing training and business support are valuable tools I could use. I would learn how to run my business and even get referrals.   These are just a few of the things my career would provide for me personally…..It would allow me the flexibility and freedom to take my son to and from school, and be there for school events that I was never a part of before.  It will allow me to pay for the $600 sport that I have never been able to put him in.  I never qualified for assistance in most things as I made over $35,000t wasn’t enough for these things.  This career will allow me to triple my income.  I can work hard and get paid what I am worth, and become a homeowner after 45 years of not owning a home, and not worry about rent going up $500 a month because the housing market crashed. I can travel to see my family in Europe and introduce my son to them.  Some of them have never met him and since he is 13 that is a long time. I can pay for college for my son.  I can make monetary donations to charities and Church instead of only my time.  I can offer someone else what I have been given, and pay it forward.   This is a life changing career and I am so excited about my dreams coming true!

Thank you,

Tanya Grace

Xtreme Lashes Blinking Pink- All Year Long

pink ribbon

Xtreme Lashes® Team Members Nicole Faulstich and Angel Nails attended the Susan G. Komen Pink flamingo Pink Party sponsored in part by Modern Luxury Houston Magazine.  This chic poolside cocktail party, reminiscent of a vintage Palm Beach night club, took place at Hotel Zaza in the heart of Houston’s Museum District. Over 400 guests attended, gathering in Palm Beach-chic attire to show support for this noble cause. This event raised more than $20,000 to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Houston Chapter, which provides critical research, community health programs, and advocacy programs for breast cancer treatment and awareness.

As guests of Directory Listed Stylist Lina Lou, we partnered with Lina as sponsors for the event’s swag bags. Even though Jo Mousselli and Xtreme Lashes have proudly and passionately supported breast cancer awareness and a search for the cure for several years during our Annual Blink Pink™ Campaign, we were thrilled to take our passion for “Blinking Pink” beyond the month of October and give some extra support to our hometown Houston Chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Stay tuned for announcements about the Xtreme Lashes by Jo Mousselli® Blink Pink Campaign in 2014. We will be providing some exciting options for you to partner with us to help promote breast cancer awareness, treatment for breast cancer patients, and research for the cure. Remember, however, that you too can provide your support to Susan G. Komen all year. Visit http://ww5.komen.org/Donate/Donate.html to make a personal donation, or you can encourage your clients to “Blink Pink” all year long and donate proceeds from sets with pink lashes to the organization. Together, we can all make a difference in the lives of women who battle this disease, and together we can make it possible for more women to survive.
