Candy Rookie Geraldine Rivera is all about getting things done, whether it's in school or off-campus. "I always set goals for myself and no matter what happens, I still keep going because I believe that success can be earned by hard work and dedication."

One major aspect of her life that has seen this through is her hustle as a makeup artist. "Makeup has been my biggest passion since college started," says the Construction Engineering Management junior. "That’s why aside from being a student, I also work as a part-time makeup artist."

"Makeup excites me because I view it as an extension for my love of art. It enhances natural beauty, and boosts my confidence," she says. But it doesn't end there, aside from being a tool for self-expression, Geraldine also makes sure to spread the love. "It also makes me happy that through make up, I [am] able to boost the confidence of my clients as well."
