Year at UW: Third

Hometown: Yakima, WA

Gender: female

About me: Hey everyone! My name is Kira and I'm currently a junior studying Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Math. I think the Honors program is a great opportunity to take a variety of interesting classes that are outside of your major; some of my favorite classes were Honors! I have lived in the dorms in the Engineering Community as well as in on-campus apartments. I try to get involved and experience as much here at UW as possible and I'd love to answer any questions and share my experiences with you.
