Gabriela Manzanares Jule

Spring 2021 Intern

Gabriela Manzanares Jule is a senior at Illinois Wesleyan University, and in her first semester as an SBDC intern. 


She is a Bilingual Senior Political Science & Business double major, as well as a Hispanic Studies minor. She chose her majors because she likes the courses that were offered. 

She was interested in the SBDC because of the real hands-on experience she gets as an intern. Her project is new this year, which is to create and manage the Spanish Facebook page. She enjoys this opportunity because she gets to create something from the start and planning it out is a lot of fun. Gabriela has learned about what it takes to open a business in McLean County. She is also learning about the importance of process documentation. 

During her free time, she enjoys listening to podcasts, trying new recipes, and watching movies with her friends.​​
