Keilana is an 18-year-old sophomore at the University of Central Florida majoring in computer engineering who completed her freshman year of college while still in high school.

Keilana’s dreams lie in the stars…so she is aiming for them.

Her goal and mission statement is to write code and build the robotic technology we will need to colonize other planets that have the vital resources that we, as a species, require to survive as we use up this world’s resources.

Keilana may be staring upward but her feet are firmly planted on the ground. She has emerged from tenuous circumstances in an impoverished neighborhood and aspires to help others from her community achieve better lives. She is committed to achieving financial success so that she can build transitional shelters with educational opportunities to help those in need break the cycle of homelessness.

With her ambition, desire, drive and determination, she is a role model to other girls who wish to reach for the stars. We know that Keilana B. will be achieving great success.
