Yaneth Valencia yaneth valencia

Hello, my name is Yaneth Valencia from Pasco, Washington. I am a senior studying to become a Mechanical Engineer with a minor in Mathematics and in Spanish. I have wanted to be an engineer since the 7th grade when I was placed in a class called Project Lead the Way where I learned how to code little gadgets that we built in class. Someday I plan on being able to volunteer with Engineers without Borders and help out all over the world. I am a first-generation college student. In my free time, I enjoy reading, painting, and anything that involves creativity. I also value the time I spend with my family and friends.
