Black Boy Gets Accepted To Every Ivy League School!

This is a great story that I hope gets more coverage! It's college acceptance time and one kid from Long Island got accepted to every single member of the Ivy League: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, University of Penn, Dartmouth and Brown. His name is Kwasi Enin and he is the 17-year-old son of immigrants from the African country of Ghana. Yes, people, this smart kid is black!

CBS reports:
Kwasi Enin has until May 1 to decide on a school. He said he is leaning toward Yale, where he will likely study the medical field – specifically to become a cardiologist. 
“I’m trying to major in either biology, neuroscience or, if I go to Yale, biomedical engineering,” he said.  
With that said, Enin does admit to having a guilty pleasure.
“Video games,” he said. 
For someone to accomplish the all but unattainable at 17 years old, Enin hopes to continue a strict regimen – with a possible future of changing the world as Dr. Kwasi Enin.
So there ya go, sometimes there are good news stories in the news!
