Graduate Spotlight

Janaya Smith Headshot
Hallmark changed my life, my perspective and my career path. Sustaining in school was never a strong quality of mine being dyslexic; one night while being in college I just cried to my mom telling her that I couldn't pursue this any longer and the studying was killing me. She had found Hallmark online and told me I should take a look at it, looking into the school and actually attending for the full 10 months have been the most rewarding and enjoying process of my entire life. Hallmark made school so easy and fun! We got hands on experience and training with some of the best equipment in the industry, gained business knowledge and learned from the most caring instructors.

Leaving here, I feel confident that I will be successful with every job that comes my way. The best thing is that even though I will be away from the campus, the instructors will never leave me. Hallmark has the best alumni program and I am honored to be a part of this prestigious school.
