Yaneth Valencia yaneth valencia

Hello, my is Yaneth Valencia from Pasco, Washington, or the Tri-Cities area in general. I am a sophomore studying to become a Mechanical Engineer. 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 make a difference to someone in need. I also hope to study abroad and join other clubs on campus. I am a first-generation college student. In my free time, I enjoy reading and spending time with family and friends.
