Nina Avetisyan is the oldest child in her family and is the first to attend college. She has worked hard to prepare for this opportunity through participation in our college readiness programs.
“If I had not been a Summer Youth Employment participant, I would have missed the opportunity to obtain real work experience, to grow as a person and become more mature,” Nina said of the program. “It has prepared me for the real world.”
Nina graduated from APEX Academy in Hollywood in Summer 2013 and now attends the University of California, Riverside.
