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.

With her desire to find cures to viruses and improve healthcare, she wants to help show underrepresented communities that they can get help.

Alena will attend the University of Alabama at Birmingham Heersink School of Medicine and complete at 18 if all goes well.
