Congratulations! Texas Girl, 13, Youngest Black Student Accepted to Medical School
Forget 'Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?'. A better question is, are you brighter than Alena Analeigh Wicker of Forth Worth, Texas? This young lady has just accomplished something historic.
CONGRATS ARE IN ORDER
Congratulations are most definitely in order for this Texas native. The New York Post reports that she is the youngest black student to be accepted into medical school. Yes, that’s right - medical school.
According to the Washington Post, Alena will be attending the University of Alabama’s Heersink School of Medicine beginning in 2024. She graduated from high school at the age of 12, and is currently taking undergrad pre-med classes. She's always been a gifted young lady, and now her intelligence and hard work have earned her a place in history.
THIS KID IS AMAZING
Alena recently sat down for an interview with Good Morning America about her accomplishments, and she made it very clear you’re not too young to do anything. She feels like she’s proven that she can do anything as long as she puts our heart and mind into it.
This amazing young lady said she wants to study viruses and continue her volunteer efforts in the community.
Talk about black girl magic. This is black girl royalty!
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!
Alena is currently a college junior at Arizona State and Alabama Oakwood University, where she’s earning two separate degrees in biology.
Her mother was right there with her all those years, nurturing her gift. That's what great parents do. As long as our kids know that we believe in them, anything is possible. Just look at Alena.
Congratulations, gorgeous. You deserve it!
