12-year-old prodigy set to attend college


Can you believe Alena Wicker a 12 year old girl in Arizona has already completed high school through home schooling and is on her way to Arizona State University!  That is incredible!  I know a lot of people who haven’t even completed high school before they were 18 years old let alone go to a University. She plans to major in astronomical and planetary sciences and chemistry.  She found her passion in building when she would build with LEGOs.  So parents as much as it sucks to step on LEGOs at 2am in the morning, it may inspire your children.

Wicker has dreams to work at NASA when she turns 16 years old and I have a strong feeling that will happen. “I’ll be driving one of those future space mobiles by the time I graduate college,” Wicker said.  She has a goal to build rovers similar to the one that was sent to Mars in Perseverance Mission.

This is proof that age doesn’t matter and that we should be encouraging our youth to dream big and put in the work!
