Jade Zalonka just graduated from Empire Beauty School in Pottsville, PA and will be leaving for Los Angeles soon, where she will be doing makeup for a new movie.

 “I was in shock when I was offered the opportunity. I come from a really small town and it’s exciting to be able to say I am really living a dream right now.
