Florida Lt. Governor Jeanette Nunez Keynote Speaker During School-to-Work VisitScholarship & Mentoring Program
Yesterday Carnival Foundation held the January school-to-work visit. The guest speaker was Florida Lt. Governor Jeanette Nunez, who was elected as Florida’s first Latina Lieutenant Governor in 2018. Born and raised in Miami, her ties to Carnival run deeper than her speaking engagement. Nunez’s sister Isabel works for Carnival and is a mentor in the program! The Lt. Governor spoke to the group about how she first got involved in politics and about the challenges she faces finding a balance in her life as a wife, mom and elected official. She told the group that whatever they set out to do in life, they should do with passion and a purpose. She also spoke about the benefits of having a mentor and using the opportunity to learn and grow. We also recognized our mentors for National Mentoring Month, and the students gave their mentor a picture frame with a photo of the duo.
