A student at Westlake High School has received acceptance letters from more than 50 universities as well as scholarships totaling over $1.3 million. Daya Brown, a former student council president and member of the Harvard Diversity Project, stated that she eventually did not want to pay for college.
She added that because she started the process so early, she was able to complete her scholarship and college application applications. During my sophomore year, I began making a list of all the colleges I wanted to attend.
"I had already started researching scholarships. I'm writing down a different objective for each quarter, she told 11Alive.com. "Colleges make it so simple. You receive visits online. Attend such meetings and make sure you've done your research.
Brown further stated that "colleges adore the uniqueness about applications" after devoting three hours every day to them for nearly four months.
"Join up for those internships and head over to the job application. They want to know who you are as a person, so go to that volunteer opportunity, she said.
Brown faced hardships along the way, but she overcome them all and sought financial assistance when she needed to. She claimed that suffering inspired her. "Education was formerly out of the question for Black people. And I believe that this feat in particular has made me feel as though I am the realization of my ancestors' wildest ambitions.
In addition to her academic duties, Brown runs her own production firm and the non-profit podcast. She cited The Scholar Social as a program that teaches teenagers about current events in a fun way. Simple talks, in my opinion, are the best method for this generation to demonstrate its voice.
Brown's parents, especially her mother, are pleased with her accomplishments. She currently has intentions to enroll at Duke University, where she will study journalism or production. According to the Atlanta teen, she chose those two because she genuinely enjoys sharing stories and having an impact on others.
"It depends on how I make people feel. No matter how many achievements I have, it doesn't matter if you remember my name. At the end of the day, all that matters is if I had an influence on you, Brown added.
