Kwasi Enin, the son of Ghanaian parents, was recently accepted to all eight of the Ivy League schools! Enin, a student of William Floyd High School in Long Island, received acceptance letters to the following Ivy League colleges and universities: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth and the University of Pennsylvania. It is a remarkable feat and Kwasi Enin was surprised when he continued to receive acceptance letters. He’s still deciding but Yale and Harvard are on the top of his list.
Several times a week, there are many stories out about teens causing problems with flash mobs, fighting and inappropriate social media behavior. It is refreshing to hear a story about teens doing positive things in their schools and communities. Congrats to Kwasi Enin! I hope his story will help encourage media to highlight teens that are doing big things and representin’ other teens well.
