La Manille School of Esthetics was the brainchild of a Filipino New York-licensed Esthetician, Ms. Sylvia Cancio whose goal was to enable Filipinos who work in the beauty industry to become at par with those Estheticians in New York, Paris, London, and in other cities in the world where beauty and skin care is a much sought-after career.
The idea of establishing this school originated from an event of Gawad Kalinga in New York, U.S.A. which Ms. Cancio had attended. She learned that GK has started a livelihood project for skin care products that contain natural produce from the lands tilted by GK villagers. It was at this point that she thought of helping GK tenants by giving them education on skin care through a scholarship program.
La Manille Esthetics School was established in January 2011 by Ms. Cancio who worked in tandem with Ms. Seven Brown, a Grooming and Beauty Director, a Premier Skin Care Educator in New York, a winner of Excellence in Education Award, and recognized internationally as an ITEC Tutor and Beauty Specialist.
