‘I want to teach girls like you’: ‘I’m going to be your hero’
Elaine Mascaro was a high school cheerleader at Elaine Maccaro’s Beauty Academy.
It was the early 1970s and Maccaros was one of the first high school girls to join the academy.
The beauty pageant, which was an annual event, was a huge success.
But Maccarro, now 85, still feels like a kid who didn’t get the opportunity to grow up.
She has never forgotten the girls who lost their lives.
I was so nervous about the girls I was working with that I wasn’t going to let it be my last year.
And they were all amazing.
It was a hard year Elaine Macaro, who was at the age of 18 when she joined Elaine Mccaro’s beauty pageant.
I remember when I came home and my dad went to work.
He was so proud of me because I was my first girl and I was going to graduate.
I think he was thinking that, if I had the chance to be a celebrity, I’d like to be like that.
And so it was, a year later, and I’d been at the beauty academy for 10 years.
But, at the same time, I had to make a decision.
Would I be willing to live in this bubble?
And I was.
And I knew that I had no regrets.
But it was a tough year.
I didn’t want to lose any weight.
I did not want to get in trouble for anything.
And that was my responsibility.
So I was doing everything I could.
We’re not just looking for a job.
We’re looking for somebody who loves our company, loves our kids, and is interested in the whole world.
I know that we’re looking to people who can take us through the process.
We’ve got a wonderful, wonderful team here.
So, we’ve got people who want to work hard, and we’re just looking to get to that point.
They’re just waiting for a chance to work with me.
I’m not saying I won’t be a great teacher.
I want to give people an opportunity to succeed.
I love teaching.
But I don’t want that to be my legacy.
I am just doing what I need to do.
And, I want it to be the best thing that I can do.
When you’re not teaching, what’s the best job for you?
Elaine Moccario, who started the beauty pageant at age 18, now teaches in the United States.
That’s my dream.
And my wife and I, we have our own house and we want to live here.
I feel like I am a part of my children’s lives.
My daughter, we’re in her second year of high school.
And it’s a very important year for us.
I just love being with her and having a beautiful day.
She’s an incredible person.
She just loves the whole experience.
What are you looking for when you’re teaching?
Elaine Mae Moccaros, who founded the beauty school at Elaine Mae’s Beauty, says she wants to teach her students that they have a voice.
You’ve got to know that your voice can have power.
And you have to know how to use your voice.
And then you have other people who will listen.
So you’ve got somebody who will say, ‘Yes, that is true.’
You can’t just say ‘Yes.’
I think it’s the power of your voice, because you’ve put yourself in this position, in this role.
I also think that you have a responsibility to listen to what your students have to say.
And also, you can’t be afraid to be different.
I mean, what are you going to say?
And I also want my students to think that if you want to be great, you have got to take that next step, that you’ve gotta go and do something that they’re not supposed to do, and that’s go on a date with someone that they don’t like, and maybe have sex with them.
That’s just the way it is.
And if you think you’re special, then you gotta be special to people.
You can say it’s your first date, you don’t have to do anything.
If you want a special person, you gotta tell them that you are special.
I don`t care if it`s just a little thing.
It`s something that can really change their life.
And to be that person is so powerful.
And when you have people who love you and respect you, you know, you`re not going to regret that.
