Tinisha Rose Quintana is the daughter of Richard and Eileen Quintana. She is Navajo/Ute and is a senior at Maple Mountain High School. Her friends describe her as crazy, “savage,” funny and friendly. In her free time she likes to do art, play strategy games and sports. Her favorite sports are soccer and lacrosse. And her favorite subject in school is Art. Jethro Gillespie has been an awesome art mentor for her. She was able to show a piece in the High School Art Show at the Springville Museum of Art this past winter.
When asked about shows she enjoys, she quickly said, Straight Outta Compton and Teen Wolf. Foods that Tinisha would choose as her favorites are pizza, tres leches and cookies. Her favorite color is turquoise.
A memorable time in high school was when she was able to go to New York. One thing on her bucket list is to travel, especially out of the country. Maybe her art gift will help her reach this goal. She plans on going to college at Utah Valley University. Her favorite quote is, “Real eyes, realize, real lies.” Tinisha has a bright future in front of her with a firm support system in place. Go get ‘em Tinisha.
