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.
