Phagans student Caitlin Tischer has been getting some press recently from the likes of Marie Claire, Brazil. The senior, who goes by Katana Fatale online, has 15 weeks before she graduates and is planning to become an esthetician – a skin guru. In the meantime, the actress, model, and singer has found time to create an influential fashion blog on Tumblr, a hobby she tells Marie Claire came by accident. She simply wanted to show her confidence regarding fashion and plus-size women, she told the publication.
Caitlin enjoys school and says it allows her to re-evaluate herself and be introspective about her career. For students who plan to attend beauty school, she offers this advice: “Focus on your education and find one thing you really love and are good at and become an expert in it.”
