St. Croix Central High graduate and Miss Central High 2011 Jeaiza M. Quinones, wants to provide other local girls with the same opportunities and mentorship she has received.
Consequently, she has started the ANE VI Mentorship Program For Young Women.
“I was lucky to have had great male mentors, but every girl should have female mentors,” Quinones said. “I have great, responsible parents, but I recognize that not all girls have good parental guidance.” Quinones said girls in grades nine through 12 that join ANE will experience something new in terms of mentor-ship by meeting, and being taken under the wing of women who live by example and strive to be women of excellence.
“We hope to be more like an older sister and role model, rather than instructors,” Quinones said. “The sisterly relationship we hope to develop with girls will enable us to reach out and reach deeper on a more personal level with them.”
She has since been in touch with the administration at St. Croix Education Complex High School and Central High School to promote the organization and pass out applications to all those living in REAL ESTATE ST CROIX.
