13-year-old exceptional girl who gained admission to study Engineering in US university changes to Medicine, makes history

Alena Analeigh Wicker, the exceptional girl who gained admission to study Engineering at 12 years old has set another record after changing her career path to Medicine.

Scholarship Region in a previous report narrated that 12-year-old Alena Analeigh gained admission to the Arizona State University, Arizona, United States to study Engineering. At the time, Alena was still a high school student when she gained admission to the University due to her exceptional brilliance and dream to become a space Engineer in future.

However, in just one year, Alena has already finished two and a half years of college by taking a full course load at Arizona State University and Oakwood University, Alabama, United States.

“I really want to leave my mark on the world. And lead a group of girls that know what they can do,” Alena said.

Alena got inspired by a trip to Jordan and The Brown STEM Girl foundation to change her passion from Engineering to Biology. “It actually took one class in engineering, for me to say this is kind of not where I wanted to go. I think viral immunology really came from my passion for volunteering and going out there engaging with the world,” she said.
