The Fierce One


They call her “The Fierce One” and Kalysta Sormunen embraces the name with her drive and passion.

Meet Kalysta Sormunen, she’s more than just a welder. Kalysta is a talented young woman who, with the help of Jobs for Michigan Graduates’ youth solutions program, turned her ambition, drive & curiosity into skills and a career she never imagined.
