After I earn my degree, I’d like to work with a firm that helps solve environmental problems, because I want future generations to enjoy the natural resources of the Earth.

Each year, College Admissions Assistance (CAA) of Arlington, Texas, awards multiple scholarships to graduating high school students enrolled in its program. Houston student Alejandra Europa is the recipient of the CAA Class of 2010 Grand Prize Scholarship of $1500. She writes, “CAA’s SAT and ACT test prep programs were very helpful! They made my scores higher. I would definitely recommend the program to my friends.” Accepted at every college and university she applied to (including UT Austin and Baylor), Alejandra finally chose Texas A&M College Station. She is enthusiastic about the traditions of A&M where, she says “It feels like home, and it’s very family friendly.” She’s also attracted by the sterling reputation of its engineering department.

Women are still under-represented in engineering departments, but thanks to talented and determined students like Alejandra, that situation is gradually changing. Alejandra received a lot of support and encouragement from her uncle, who is an industrial engineer, and his son (Alejandra’s cousin), who is a mechanical engineer.

Alejandra is entering A&M as a chemical engineering major. “After I earn my degree,” she says, “I’d like to work with a firm that helps solve environmental problems, because I want future generations to enjoy the natural resources of the Earth.” Alejandra was drawn to engineering because “All engineering fields influence and affect people’s daily lives; and that’s what I want to do—improve people’s lives.”

We’re pretty sure she’s going to do just that. Everyone at CAA is extremely proud of Alejandra, and its entire high school graduating class of 2010.
