Yanela Diaz is graduate of G. Holmes Braddock Sr. High, who will be attending Rice University this fall to study architecture. Her interest in architecture was fueled from experience in an internship and summer program, where her skills and drive led her to win the Top Architecture Student award. She wishes to pursue a master’s in architecture and a bachelor’s in material sciences. Her future goal is to combine the field of architecture and sciences; she wishes to research new recyclable construction materials and advocate for environmentally aware designs. Thanks to the Diversity Advancement Scholarship, her dreams are a closer step to reality.
