Yvette was a student attending the University of New Mexico. She has worked towards her B.S. in Biology with a minor in Spanish. She worked at the Graduate Resource Center, where she provided assistance to underprivileged students to improve their pre and post-graduate educational opportunities. She was also involved with El Centro de la Raza, which was an underrepresented ethnic group center that took on civic projects within the community. Karina hopes to gain opportunities that will help her be part of the solution through improving the lives of others.
