Teen Becomes Youngest Student Ever to Get Accepted into Medical School in US at 13
July 30, 2022
A teenage prodigy named Alena Analeigh has made history as the youngest person to be accepted into medical school in the United States of America. At 13, she also finished two and a half years of courses at Arizona State University (ASU) and Oakwood University.
When Alena was 12 years old, she got accepted to ASU to pursue an Engineering programme with dreams of working for NASA in the future.
However, another passion took over after she attended one class in the field and quickly realised it was not where she wanted to go.
Despite the change in her career path, her quest to leave her footprints in the sands of time has not changed. ”I want to leave my mark on the world. And lead a group of girls that know what they can do,” says Alena, according to 12 News. Alena was inspired to switch her course from Engineering to the medical field after a trip to Jordan and The Brown STEM Girl foundation.
