From The Suffolk Times website:

When Cecilia Stevens was 14 years old, she did what many young teenage girls do. She followed her older sister’s example, which meant joining the Summer Exploration cosmetology program at Eastern Suffolk Board of Cooperative Educational Services in Riverhead.

During the two-week course, Cecilia, now 17, learned something very valuable: Cosmetology wasn’t for her.

She wanted to attend the BOCES summer program again the following summer, and asked her mom for advice on what career to try next. Her mom suggested she try a field altogether different from cosmetology, something like automotive technology.

Turns out mother knows best.

Three years later, the Mattituck High School student is still active in a field she was initially nervous to pursue, especially since she knew boys would outnumber girls in class.
