Last year it was Kwasi Enin, who is now a well-adjusted freshman at Yale University.
This year we have already heard about Harold Ekeh.
We would now like to introduce you to Victor Agbafe of Wilmington, North Carolina and Munira Khalif of St. Paul Minnesota, the two latest high school seniors to be admitted to all eight Ivy League schools.
Agbafe plans to double major in microbiology and government economics and plans to become a neurosurgeon. He managed to score an astounding 2270 on his SAT and is CEO of the Model UN. Khalif is a state speech champion and is the founder of her school’s Social Consciousness Club. She plans to major in political science and become “a force for good in the world.”
In addition to their impressive Ivy League acceptances, they have also received “yes” letters from other top educational institutions, including Stanford and MIT. While neither teen has made a decision as to where they will enroll, they are both excited and currently visiting campuses to help them pick the best fit for them.
It isn’t a coincidence that all of these students migrated to the US from Africa early in their youth and were raised by their African parents. They are testimonies to what a structured upbringing with parents that are fully invested in your future can produce.
Let’s all take note and make sure we celebrate these exceptional young individuals.
