She'll blind you with science, creativity
Humble High School senior Alicia Wafa is passionate about learning, reading and writing.
Wafa hopes to attend college and become a molecular biologist. In the meantime, she's focusing her attention on finishing the novel she's been writing on her computer. Imagination, inspiration and creation are three things Wafa couldn't live without and, when asked what inspires her, she responded, "The very best of humanity and, occasionally, how it rises above the very worst."
