8 Top American schools shop for 17 years old Nigerian genius
Like Ghanaian Kwasi Enin, 17, did last year, a Nigerian high school senior Harold Ekeh, 17, who came to the US with his parents when he was just eight, has been accepted into not one, but 8 Ivy League universities. Now, he’s trying to decide which one to go. He actually got into all 13 schools he applied to, including MIT and John Hopkins.
Speaking about his early life in Nigeria, Harold said; “We had a fairly comfortable life in Nigeria, but they told me we moved to America for the opportunities like the educational opportunities.
“I am very humbled by this,” Ekeh said. “It’s not just for me, but for my school and community. We can accomplish great things here.” (LIB)
