Fil-Am teen genius continues to shake up the Science world
Consistency is what molds average into excellence and Fil-Am teen prodigy Alessandra ‘Storm’ Maurizio sure knows how to keep her stats on solid ground with a bunch of new accolades.
Armed with her penchant to push her limits and reach new heights, she’s pioneering a frontier in the field of Science — a saga that continues to evolve faster than we have expected.
Storm first soared in the world of Science when, as a 12-year-old student, she presented at the 49th Annual Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) in 2020. One might think it’s a plot for a Netflix series but for her, it’s just a normal day in her extraordinary life.
Her research, presented at the AAGL focused on the study, “Do Children that Play Video Games Perform Better in Surgery?” And with a GPA of 4.86, it’s not surprising that such a young mind could achieve such a feat while also acing her academic stats.

With each accolade, Storm redefines what the younger generation is capable of — armed with hard work, perseverance and a supportive family.
As she continues to break records and barriers on the science scene, one can’t help but wonder, what would she conquer next?
