CORONA - Yasmeen Dibas, a senior at Santiago High School, was recently featured in the SkillsUSA Diversity in Manufacturing video series. Yasmeen shares she became interested in architectural and design manufacturing at an early age. "There were never pens around the house because I was always taking them apart and trying to figure out how to put them back to together," said Yasmeen. "I like knowing how things are created and how they're thought up from the beginning. And what the rules are. Why you can do this and why you can't do that." Yasmeen explains what she loves about the manufacturing field and her dedication to turn that love into a great career.
