The perfect score almost didn't happen, though. Pascoe said she was content with the 33 she scored on the test as a sophomore.

“I almost didn't take the test again,” she said. “I had already done well enough on it. My parents wanted me to take it again, and I thought, ‘I might as well.' But I didn't really think I could make a perfect score. I am not exactly the poster child for confidence, so I am very happy I decided to take the test again. Sometimes I don't realize what all I can accomplish.”

Not only has the future chemical engineering major been stellar in the classroom, she also excels athletically. Pascoe and her Tulsa-based soccer club, Hurricane FC 95, finished runners-up in a national championship this past summer. Pascoe scored the winning goal in her team's regional competition.

She said she hasn't decided what college she will attend, listing Stanford University and the University of Oklahoma as options.

On the wings of her perfect ACT score, Pascoe said her confidence is soaring.

“I'm not exactly sure what I want to do yet,” she said. “Maybe cure cancer. I want to change the world.”
