Long Island Whiz Kid Kwasi Enin Picks His Ivy League College
Kwasi Enin was one of the most sought after high school students this year, seeing that he had been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools. Despite a bit of backhanded racism here and there, he’s received nothing but positive press as he carefully chose the college of his choice and he’s narrowed in on a pick.
He’s rolling with the Bulldogs. As in Yale University.
“I’m excited and proud to announce that this fall I will become a member of the Yale class of 2018,” he said to cheers from teachers and students present at the HS gym.
He said a visit to the campus helped him make up his mind.
“My Bull Dog Days experience last week was incredible. I met geniuses from all over the world. And everyone was so friendly and inviting. And I believe that their deep appreciation and love for music, like I have, was very critical,” he said.
He said financial aid was a very important factor for him — and that all schools offered the same package.
His school’s principal, Barbara Butler, has called her student an inspiration.
“I heard other kids remarking about him — ‘I want to do that,’” she said. “It couldn’t have happened to a better kid. He’s such a well-rounded, humble and modest young man.”
Kwasi plans on being a doctor of some sort.
Hopefully his strive for greatness can rub off on his peers locally and nationwide. Lord knows they need a real inspiration outside of the entertainment realm for a change.
