We are raising money to offer a full scholarship to those who are in a Reentry and/or Recovery program, to attend One Stop Beauty School and become a licensed Nail Technician. The foundation’s mission is to select a "Lotus Scholar" to learn a skill and earn an honest living, while finding their purpose in life: helping others feel beautiful.
The scholarship is named after Olivia Mae and the beautiful and resilient lotus flower, which has a life cycle unlike any other plant. With its roots latched in mud, it submerges every night into river water and miraculously re-blooms the next morning, sparklingly clean. In many cultures, this process associates the flower with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment.
