Jovani Mendez, 18, Fort Myers

“I want to do something in the medical field but don’t have the money. My family is low-income. My parents don’t work. It would be great to get a quick job so I can provide for my family and still have time to study. I need money for gas and I’m not working right now. I’d like to be able to further my education while working. My grandmother had cancer and my aunt is HIV positive so that’s made me interested in the medical field and becoming a nurse practitioner. I love working with people. I just graduated from high school and it’s hard to get a job because everyone wants experience.”
