Steffany Yang, class of 2022
There’s no slowing down for third-year Honors College student Steffany Yang, who is pursuing degrees in mechanical engineering and renewable energy.
Off campus, Steffany won an engineering internship for the Vice President of Environmental Health, Safety and Quality at Panasonic Energy of North America, at Tesla’s Gigafactory 1. On campus, she is involved in civic engagement as a Senator for the College of Engineering and as a Bonner Leader. As a first-generation immigrant, Steffany’s senate role allows her to advocate for a more resourceful college to better support engineering students, especially underrepresented students, through legislation, sustainability, and social justice during Nevada’s 87th legislative session.
