Mi nombre es Yuriana Garcia. My name is Yuriana Garcia and I am originally from Mexico. I moved to the United States, the land of the free, when I was eight years old. My adolescent years were spent in Eastern Washington, where I lived with my parents and three young brothers. One day, I hope to have a biomedical engineering degree and work in the healthcare industry by bringing new innovations to treat mortal diseases. From my education and work I will then be able to offer my parents and brothers the brighter future we came after ten years ago.
