Isabelle

Las Vegas High School

Class of 2017

Isabelle received what seemed to be bad news--she was not accepted to the university where she applied. Rather than giving up, she heard about JAG students traveling to the Tesla Gigafactory in Reno for job interviews and decided to find out about this. At first, she was uncertain if this was the right path for her, but decided to give it a try. With her JAG Specialist's coaching and support, Isabelle’s interview was a success and she was hired!

Being on the line at the Gigafactory and working alongside engineers sparked Isabelle's interest in engineering. "This work woke up a different side of me and opened up a whole new world”.  2 years later, Isabelle continues to work at the Gigafactory wihile attending Truckee Meadows Community College as part of Tesla’s Manufacturing Development Program.  Isabelle is one example of the 3,200 amazing youth that the JAG Nevada program serves annually!
