Nayeli: "The will to be the first in my family to go to college"
Nayeli was the first in her family from Mexico born in the United States. She has done an outstanding job of acclimating herself to American life, cultural differences and the educational process. Her dedication and determination-matched with Goodwill’s support-have created a community leadership role for Nayeli; making her one of the most active participants in our program today.
Through Goodwill’s network, Nayeli landed an internship at RTD and a leadership position in Goodwill’s Youth Advisory Program; a program put in place to educate other teens about Goodwill. In addition, Nayeli is the secretary for Future Business Leaders of America and dedicated part of her summer break to participate in Goodwill’s boot camp to prepare for college.
A leader with a quiet presence, Nayeli is a dependable, incredible motivator who will definitely impact our community for years to come.
