Jayd Jacobson loves to push herself outside her comfort zone. Life hasn’t always been easy, but when Jayd takes chances, she unlocks possibilities.
As a Cosmetology student, Jayd chose a SkillsUSA category that she perceived as a weak area. Not only did Jayd improve her barbering skills, but she also took first place in the national competition. But Jayd didn’t stop there. She participated in the Davis Technical College Runway Show as a model and served as a Student Ambassador.
After completing her program, Jayd wanted to do even more and enrolled in the Master Esthetician program. Although she has overcome significant challenges and difficulties, Jayd always looks at ways to overcome the obstacles in her path.
“Davis Technical College helped me not define myself by my challenges; it helped me define myself by my successes.”
