Alena Wicker is a girl with a decidedly out of the ordinary brain, in fact she is only 12 years old and has just enrolled in engineering university. With obviously excellent results, she managed to graduate with honors and access the engineering faculty of Arizona State University, where she attends a double specialization in chemistry and astronomical / planetary science.
Alena was able to learn quickly and graduate years earlier than the kids her age.
Growing up his dream has always remained the same becoming even stronger.
To exceed expectations, Alena will graduate twice in astronomical and planetary science and chemistry. Hopefully, he’ll finish college at 16 and go to NASA that same year.
In addition to her work goal, Alena seeing the numerical disparity of access to scientific universities by the female population and people of color, Alena also wants to become an engine for social change.
He wants to be an example and a spur for many other girls to encourage them to approach the “scientific” world and to the faculties that for the great majority are still the prerogative of the male sex for the moment.
For this reason she has already opened a “Brown Stem Girl” website to support and encourage other girls with similar interests by focusing on fields from which they had historically been excluded, and in her projects there is also that of opening a podcast that will deal with precisely these themes and which wants to encourage young women not to let the preconceived notions of others prevent them from defining their own destiny.
