Gloria Nino

December 22, 2015 webteam Mentee Spotlight: Santa Ana

Gloria is a junior at Tierra Del Sol Continuation High School. While faced with issues at home as a caregiver, Gloria has continued to make an effort to make it to school prepared and ready to work. At TDS, she is mentored by Teresa Nieto. “Gloria does not let her roadblocks stop her from reaching her end goal,” relates Teresa, “She is quick to jump in and help when she can and is working hard to catch up on credits.” Gloria aspires to be a veterinarian and has taken it upon herself to seek out volunteer opportunities with an animal shelter that will help get her experience for her future and other general work experience. “Life might have its challenges for her,” says Teresa, “But Gloria has the good sense and perseverance to rise above them to a greater future.”
