Alejandra Vasquez was a student at Dolores Huerta Elementary, Lennox Middle School, and Lennox Academy.
She is now majoring in electrical engineering with a computer engineering emphasis at Loyola Marymount University, tackling an issue we all encounter. Along with two other engineering students, she is using a combination of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Google to help fix potholes.
Not only is she using technology to fix real-world problems, but she is also the Co-President of El Espejo and has served in that role for the last two years.
El Espejo Mentoring Program is a program that serves students at Lennox Middle School and fosters bonds between LMS LEAP and Loyola Marymount University.
El Espejo serves to educate, mentor, and establish bonds with inner-city youth in order to promote a better understanding of the possibilities of personal and intellectual growth.
Alejandra was a participant in the El Espejo program at Lennox Middle School and went on to lead the program at Loyola Marymount University to give back to her community.
We are proud to recognize Alejandra for her accomplishments and wish her much success!
She and her classmates were recently featured on KTLA for this unique project. Congratulations Alejandra!
