Ugonma Igwe, a senior at Stony Point High School in Round Rock, wanted to come to the University of Houston-Victoria before the institution began admitting freshmen.
She hopes to be a doctor someday and wants to earn her bachelor’s degree in pre-med biology at UHV.
Igwe said she’s excited to be a part of the FIRST 200.
"I feel great. I feel like I'm making history," she said..
Igwe is a volunteer at Scott and White Hospital in Austin and went to state competition this year with DECA, an association for marketing students.
After she graduates, Igwe wants to be a pediatrician.
