Alena Analeigh, a 13 years African American has made history as the youngest black girl to ever be accepted into medical school.

She told 12 News: “I really want to leave my mark on the world. And lead a group of girls that know what they can do. I want to inspire the girls. I want them to see that there are no limits”.

Alena’s initial dream was to work for NASA someday and after she got accepted to ASU’s engineering program when she was 12 years old.

She took a course in engineering and discovered this wasn’t for her so she left although she has had a passion for volunteering, and engaging with the world.

I’ve worked so hard to reach my goals and live my dreams. Mama, I made it. I couldn’t have done it without you,” she wrote in part.”
