Yesmin Aquino is a current freshman student at the New York City College of Technology, majoring in Hospitality Management. One thing that characterizes Yesmin is her desire to success and to make her family proud which keeps her on track, motivated to face any challenge and overcome whatever difficult situation that comes on her way. At the age of 14 she immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic, starting her sophomore year in high school right away; this was one of her most difficult challenges yet not so hard to overcome due to her dedication to school and fighting spirit. Music and books are some her passions; she loves to going out with her friends and playing volleyball as a form of distraction, also taking long walks. As a new college student Yesmin is very excited about what the future holds, she is expecting to grow more as a person from this experience and give what it takes to achieve her goals.
