Sujelit Quintero is a Lumity intern and a rising senior at Corliss High School. Her dream is to own a restaurant and/or beauty salon. Therefore, learning communication and business skills during the Early College STEM School summer internship program will be a big help for Sujelit.
Sujelit likely got her entrepreneurial spirit from her mother, who owns several small businesses including a grocery store and butcher shop. She’s currently working to open a gym as well. Sujelit’s mother always taught her to chase her dreams and this has led her to believe in her own success.
After graduation, Sujelit plans to attend either culinary or beauty school. She is also considering community college for a few years to prepare for the challenges of running a business.
Sujelit was nominated for this program by her principal at school. She’s really excited about the opportunity to learn throughout the summer and gain valuable workplace experience.
