At just 19 years old, the third semester student of the Mechatronics Engineering career at the Hermosillo Technological Institute (ITH) was chosen to participate in NASA's International Air and Space Program 2021.

He detailed the following through social networks: "Since I was little my dream has always been to work for NASA, that is why I have always studied a lot and worked hard."

Similarly, he mentioned that he does not want to miss this great opportunity and that he needs support to raise the cost of the program, which is $ 3,500.

Through his Facebook account, Yanire published a flyer in which he indicates a bank account in which contributions can be made so that he can fulfill his dream of attending the NASA project. In the same way, the young woman mentions that activities will be carried out in the future to support her. She still says that sharing her publication is of great help to her, since that way she reaches more people.

Congratulating in advance, he announced the account where contributions can be sent:

BBVA 277-565-3657 or with Clabe Interbancaria 0127 6002 7756 536579 in the name of Frelani Valdez.
