Folks are side-eyeing two Fox 5 D.C. news anchors after calling the Houston teen who received a full ride to all 20 colleges he applied to obnoxious.
When news of 17-year-old Micheal Brown’s academic achievements went viral, the senior at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in Houston dominated national headlines. The excited teen could be seen reading an acceptance letter to Stanford in a video that recently went viral.
Schools like Harvard University, Princeton University, Northwestern University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, Georgetown University and Vanderbilt University were some of his top choices. However, he has yet to make a decision. The young man attributes his success to his mother’s hard work as well as his dedication to community and after-school programs that gave him opportunities to succeed.
He was accepted into some of the best colleges in the country and received full scholarships to them, but some think he may have taken the spotlight from other students with the news anchors taking jabs at the young man for overachieving.
