At just 12-years old, Alena Wicker is heading Arizona State University soon majoring in astronomical and planetary science and chemistry. She wants to be an engineer for NASA… a dream she has had since she was four and building NASA-sized Legos.
Alena will start ASU this summer and expects to finish college at the age of 16 saying, “I’ll be driving in one of those future space mobiles by the time that I graduate college.”
The engineering prodigy also plans to launch a podcast to share her journey and said, “I’m just planning it all as I go. It doesn’t matter what your age or what you’re planning to do. Go for it, dream, then accomplish it.” (Source: BlackNews.com)
