Yadira Valadez

Place of birth:

Colorado Springs, CO

Family Heritage:



Computer Science Engineering Student

Current job:

UI Engineering Intern


As a student, I have been able to take a wide range of courses, from database architecture to video game design and curriculum. I was able to combine my love of art and tech with computer science and graphic design.


At my internship, I design and build the user interfaces for scientific tools. I hope to keep working in UI/UX design.

Why would you recommend exploring careers in science and technology to other Latina girls?

It's amazing! It brings my love of art and design with my love of technology and coding. It opens doors to things I would have never imagined doing.

I feel empowered and I think every Latina should feel that way.
