Sheira Smith graduated from college at age 16 in her native Belize, and received a scholarship to Cambridge University in England.
She moved to New York and landed a job as a bank teller and began working her way up the corporate ladder. Now a senior manager, she’s been with her current bank in Los Angeles for 25 years.
Regardless of her long-term employment status, Smith makes it a mission to go on job interviews with other companies at least once a year. She does this to keep her interview skills sharp and to be aware of the current job market.
Smith credits her success to her remarkable mother, who has guided her to success in life.
