Hi, I am Alejandra Vasquez, and a current senior at George Washington High School. I moved from Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela to Denver Colorado during the fall of 2019 in the middle of my freshman year. Since then, I’ve learned English and adapted to a new educational system. Furthermore, I decided to do the IB diploma during my junior year, and I currently aid in achieving my high school and IB diploma! I like playing video games, doing robotics, doing puzzles, and hanging out with my friends and family! I plan to study a dual major in Biomedical and Computer Engineering at CSU -fort Collins. In the future, I would like to focus on the development and improvement of prostheses and artificial organs.
