12-Year Old Girl Gets Admission To Study Chemistry and Engineering At US Varsity

A 12-year-old brilliant girl, Alena Wicker, made her dream come true when she got admitted to study at Arizona State University, ASU, where she will study Astronomical and Planetary Science and Chemistry.

According to the young girl, she revealed that she plans to be an engineer for NASA someday because through out her life she kept dreaming of working as engineer.

“I always dreamed of being an engineer because throughout my life I liked the building,” Alena told 11Alive about her goal to work at NASA.

Since she was 4-years old, it had always been her dream as she was building NASA-sized Legos.

“She just had a gift for numbers and Lego and science so I started nurturing that gift,” said her mother Daphne McQuarter.

When Alena finished high school through homeschool classes, she began pursuing that dream and will be starting classes at ASU this summer. She expects to finish college at the age of 16.

“I’ll be driving in one of those future space mobiles by the time that I graduate college,” Alena said, adding that she wants to build rovers that could be sent to other planets as well.

More than that, Alena is also also very active on her Facebook page where she plans to launch a podcast to share her journey.

“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,” she said.
