lielocks:

a friendly reminder: COLLEGE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
- people who went/go to college are not ‘better’ or ‘smarter’ than anyone else
- there is no right time to pursue ‘higher education’
- no matter what, you are still a person and you deserve to be treated with respect

The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.

We should know by know the  Media doesn’t want to show us positive black stories so we do our best at SanCopha League To share as many as possible. Meet Stephen R. Stafford.

"At just 16 years old, Stephen R. Stafford II has accomplished more than most of the general population.

He is currently earning credits toward his triple major at Morehouse College —pre-med, mathematics and computer science.

The genius has yet another achievement to add to his list. He made “The World’s 50 Smartest Teenagers.”

Stephen started at Morehouse College at 11 years of age because his mother, who was homeschooling him, could not keep up with his potential. The college student is also a talented classical pianist; he began to play the piano at the age of two. When asked about his exceptional abilities, the teen replies: “I’m just like any other kid. I just learn very, very quickly.”

Georgia law requires a student to be 16 before they can graduate from high school. Because of this, Stephen will receive his college degrees just one year after he graduates high school. His plans are to attended Morehouse School of Medicine, where he is expected to graduate from the school at 22.”

Summers said, “When only ten percent of the students in elite higher education come from families in the lower half of the income distribution, we are not doing enough. We are not doing enough in bringing elite higher education to the lower half of the income distribution.”
