Madison Quiroga
Major: Biomedical Engineering and Spanish
Year: Freshman

As the Wylie High School student body president, Madison often has to rally students to work together towards a common goal. In fact, she was tasked with choreographing her school’s musical as a junior. Each dance was crafted in such a way that the students could perform it with ease. She hopes to use her leadership and creativity to design necessary, cost-effective medical equipment for use in countries with fewer medical advancements and opportunities. As a proud Hispanic woman, she wants to be an example to other women and persons of color in the STEM field.
