My Place Teen Center Member Spotlight: Muna


My Place Teen Center would like to recognize and congratulate Muna for being the Teen Member Spotlight for June.

Muna is 18 and a new graduate of Westbrook High School. She has lived in Westbrook for two years and since last April has attended MPTC, where the staff commends her self-determination and forthright personality. Muna is a resilient, smart young woman who can achieve anything she sets her mind to.

Muna says she feels most at home when at the teen center. She takes joy in its science, technology, engineering and math programs and in helping out with responsibilities such as cleaning the cafeteria after meals.  She attends every day. She has shown burgeoning leadership and courtesy skills, which she has brought to the group this past year. The words Muna used to describe herself are independent and level-headed.

Muna also enjoys riding her bike, reading and going for walks. She takes interest in reading scholarly articles and various genres of media. Her favorite song is “I’m Alright” by Kenny Loggins and her favorite movie is “Over the Hedge”  She recently completed the culinary arts program at Westbrook Regional Vocational Center and took an interest in baking, especially chocolate cake and cannolis.

Keep up the amazing work, Muna. We are proud of you and all that you have accomplished thus far! Happy graduation!
