Miranda is a freshman at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California to study industrial design with a focus on sustainable design. She works full time as an Esthetician while attending a rigorous design. Miranda’s professor, Albert Yu writes, “Her car interior and exterior design projects demonstrates that she will have a bright future in the automotive design field. She approaches projects from a product designer point of view, generating clever solutions as well as fresh design vocabulary refreshingly different from typical car design students.” Miranda also competes in design, engineering, and building projects with Chinese universities and professional companies. She also volunteers at Step Up Women’s Network in Los Angeles, CA whose purpose is to propel girls from under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.  The scholarship was sponsored by Cox Automotive.
