As always, we are immensely proud to feature fellow Cubans and Cuban Americans who have done good. Today we have a Cubanita Done Good Story, featuring Carolina Ragolta, a Cuban American science whiz named one of Harvard University’s 22 most impressive students.
Carolina Ragolta is a science wiz on track to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming an astronaut.
Class of 2013
Ragolta has spent two summers working at the Kennedy Space Center and one summer working at Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif., where she developed an artificial membrane with the same capacity for photosynthesis as a leaf.
While Ragolta already has a scholarship from NASA, her work earned her a coveted internship with the organization as well, where she hopes to return after graduation for a job.
In addition to these accomplishments, Ragolta has also served as president of the Delta Gamma sorority and a member of the Sablière Society and the Cuban Students Organization.
