Meet the bright kid, Michael Brown. From Harvard to Stanford, they all want him Image: Facebook
Now that exams are over in most parts of the world, the college admission season has just begun. Just like spring — it has no connect whatsoever. Moving on, we were talking about college admissions. Oh, the nastiest season in academics!
So, while y'all are busy filling out application forms and scouting for colleges, there's a teenager thou shall be envying for the rest of your lives. A 17-year-old Houston-based teen applied to 20 colleges in total and guess what? He got accepted in all 20 of them.
*wallowing in self-doubt in one corner *
Here's how Micheal Brown celebrated his acceptance to Stanford. The 17-year-old from Houston, Texas, applied to 20 of the best universities in the US and was admitted to every single one with a full ride — and $260,000 in additional scholarship offers https://t.co/HrXpq9vX2Y pic.twitter.com/oWMro4DAYS— CNN (@CNN) April 2, 2018
Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown, Vanderbilt... you name it and Michael Brown has an acceptance from that college. Full ride and he also has scholarship offers of $260,000.
Michael told CNN, "It's something I'm proud of because I see my hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off." His mom works two jobs to support him and his education. A senior at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School, Michael is very proactive when it comes to school's debate, student government, mock trials and other activities. He wants to major in political science, but is also considering a second degree in economics.
His inspiration? Barack Obama's election. So which college is he picking? Well, Michael will make that decision on May 1, after touring more schools and colleges.
But Michael is already an Internet star.
Way to go dude. Will look forward to voting for President Michael Brown in 20 years or so. Well done! https://t.co/Ha5fdj9QOM— The Muslim Marine🕊 (@MuslimMarine) March 31, 2018
