Yanelyn Quintana

Yanelyn Quintana is a 16-year-old Junior attending Haverhill High School. She is proud to have grown up in the City of Shoes” her whole life. She is the oldest of 3 girls. She enjoyes several extracurricular activities, which are, participating in the Spoke Word Club and all things Criminal Justice! She aspires to attend New York University, or John Hopkins University, School of Medicine, to one day become a Surgeon. Yanelyn is passionate about baking Puerto Rican pastries with her sisters, creating memories with her family, while embracing the beauty of her Puerto Rican culture and the delicious food! An organization dear to her heart is her platform Action-Oriented Alcohol where she works with an organization called TMF (The Movement Family). Yanelyn has learned firsthand that everyone’s life matters no matter the circumstance. As Miss Massachusetts Teen USA 2023, she plans on using her platform to help those suffering from addiction feel valued and assist with the recovery process of addiction. Yanelyn is so excited to attend the Miss Teen USA national competition later this year representing Haverhill, Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico!
