February 2023 Student Spotlight

February 3, 2023

Audiel Malvaez is forging his path in the Collision repair industry through WyoTech’s programs.  His passion for cars and BMX bikes, and his interest in welding drew him to the trades, so when a WyoTech recruiter visited his high school auto classroom, Audiel knew WyoTech was the place for him.  He speaks to the projects he is hoping his education at WyoTech can help him accomplish- “My dream car is a B5 Audi A4 with a 5 Cylinder in it.  I already have the car, I just need to get the engine.”  He talks about how he’s learned a lot at WyoTech, and how much he’s enjoyed his classes and making friends with the people around him.

It wasn’t all easy, though.  Coming from Utah, Audiel says that leaving home for the first time was a bit of a challenge, but it was worth it.  The best advice he can offer to students who are looking into WyoTech is to “come prepared.”  He recommends bringing a backpack and some cold weather clothes, so one doesn’t have to worry about finding some when he or she gets to the school.  He also reminds students to remain positive in their work- “It’s definitely helpful to keep a good attitude.”
