Enrique - Real Work Experience to a Real Job Offer
High School junior, Enrique, has always wanted to own his own bakery when he grows up. Enrique is both visually impaired and Deaf, which has created some unique challenges for him. He is fluent in American Sign Language and has an indomitable spirit.
Through the Lighthouse Transition Summer Experience in 2019, Enrique completed a work experience at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. By the end of the summer, Menchie’s had offered Enrique a regular position at the delicious yogurt shop and he is now one step closer to his dream of opening his own bakery!
