Go ahead this young brother [Harold Ekeh], 17, applied for 13 schools and got accepted to them all. Give him a cyber applause. [John Hawkins] and [MIT] also included in the list. "MIT" S/O  to those brainiacs in Boston, which my beautiful Stepdaughter is currently attending!  This young man founded a college Mentoring program at his school "Elmont Memorial High School" on Long Island in the York city, his goal is to get more students into top universities! "Harold" born in Nigeria, moved to the United States when he was 8, recall asking his parents repeatedly why they moved as he struggled with US history! He recalls a comfortable life in Nigeria, but his parents decided to move to America for better opportunities and educational purposes! "Ekeh" Stated, "I am very humbled by this, It's just not for me but for my school and community. We can accomplish great things here." With plans to major in neurobiology or chemistry his Goal is become a doctor.   "Harold's" grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's when he was 11. Semi finalist earlier this year for a "2015 Intel science Talent Search" researching on how the acid DHA can slow Alzheimer's! Finding breakthroughs he couldn't wait to get home and share it with his mother and aunt. "Ekeh" the second student in recent years to win this prestigious Intel science award. The youth is inspiring me. Holding down a GPA of 100.5% speaks Igbo and Spanish, is a part of the Key Club and Model UN. "Ekeh" directs a youth choir at his church where he also plays the drums. Obviously a humbled young man on the path to righteousness. Scoping out "Yale" as a favorite, his choice is still undecisive. Follow to see where this young brother is going... Yoooo Durttyzzz #LetsGetEducated
