We admire teenage Alina Annalee Wicker, who is only 13 years old, who earned her medical degree at a US university. This girl prodigy passed college a year after graduating from high school at the age of twelve.
“I worked hard to achieve my goals and live my dreams. Mom did it,” Alina wrote on social networks.
She was accepted into the Burroughs Wellcome Scholars Early Assurance Program at the University of Alabama at Hersink College of Medicine in Birmingham.
Discipline is the word that defines a student. In an interview with The Washington Post, she explained that she is very disciplined and has time management skills to be able to handle her studies.
Alina graduated from high school last year at the age of twelve. Today, he is a student at Arizona State University and Oakwood University, with two separate undergraduate degrees in biological sciences.
Now, you will also become a medical student under the Burroughs Wellcome Scholars Early Assurance program which offers early admission to students who meet the admission and enrollment requirements.
Inspiration for black girls
Alina also created “The Brown STEM Girl” to engage, empower and educate Black girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
It also created the Brown STEM Girl Foundation, which honors the legacy of Katherine Johnson, a pioneering African American mathematician in NASA.
Alina’s mother, Daphne McQuarter, told how she noticed her daughter’s intelligence and love of science from a young age.
“Alina was talented. It was just about the way she did things and how advanced she was. She read a lot of books when she was young.
