Phenom. Prodigy. Whiz kid. Those are just a few of the words used to describe Alena Analeigh, who at 12-years old is already a college sophomore as a Pre-Med Biological Sciences student, but that’s only part of her story. With a bold dream Alena became the youngest girl of color to work and intern at NASA. She is also using her voice by launching her own platforms, including The Brown STEM Girl™, The Brown STEM Girl Foundation™ and Brainiac World Media™. Through The Brown STEM Girl, Alena has received eight proclamations declaring April 30th as Brown STEM Girl STEM™ in the City Day Honoring Women of Color in STEM. This day is also set aside to engage girls of color, ages 10-17 in STEM activities and will be hosted all across the United States of America. Alena was not only both traditionally schooled and homeschooled but she was also world schooled. She is an experienced world traveler which enabled her to attend school in Amman, Jordan. LEGO® sets, Robotics, and NASA are the things that excite Alena. Phenom. Prodigy. Whiz kid. Those words don’t fully describe the essence of Alena Analeigh. Her intellectual brilliance is only a glimpse into who she is. It’s the depth of her warm-heartedness, quiet spirit, and gracious nature that sets her apart even more.
