Sabrina Alessi

TOM: University of Virginia

Biomedical Engineering

Sabrina is a second year student at the University of Virginia studying Biomedical Engineering. Her drive for bettering our world through medical technology stems from her experience 3D printing a hand for a young boy in middle school. Prior to attending UVA, Sabrina was president of her Girls who Code club and interned at an architecture firm tasked with generating CAD designs. At UVA, Sabrina is involved in HooThon – a group which works with children and supports the local children’s hospital. The formation of a TOM community on UVA grounds will provide engineering students the opportunity to apply their studies to seek innovations which will directly impact the community; a concept that strongly aligns with Sabrina’s goals.
