God bless you sir and thanks for shouting out God :D!
Soooooo his thoughts aren't being read. Or ideas arent being stolen by 2 chainz?
Nice! Jude: 2
I say he picks MIT or Stanford
Congratulations Jonathan! I'm so excited for you! God Bless you! Stay focused on God! He will guide you!
“I’ve been blessed by God!” – I stood up in applause
Did he get in on merit or his race?
Engineering major- He can't go wrong with either MIT or Stanford.
Thank you everyone for the kind words!!! I'm in the process of making a decision, but I'll be posting a video with my college choice soon–make sure you subscribe to be one of the first to know!!! Stay tuned!! 🙂
I think its absolutely fantastic this young man has been so successful but please understand if this was a white kid there would be an extreme amount of "white privilege" comments if it would even be a story at that.
Obviously Affirmative Action in action.
I guess Rutherford High School (the school he is from) got better years after I left. There was fights every other day when I went. The teachers hated their lives and sucked a lot of fun from learning as much as they could. Congrats on keeping creativity through that hell hole of a school.
Congratulations to him butttttttt who is applying to 27 Universities???!! You have to pay per application
Its funny that they only show the black kids who get accepted to multiple colleges. Ive seen this same exact story from countless black kids just in the last month.
Yessir I hope he can change the world😭😭 this man is smart ash I wish I had the ability’s he has
He is our future. May God Bless him & help save the world.
Congratulations very smart
God bless him
Wow! I look forward to seeing all of the great inventions you will bring to the world. Congrats to your parents also.
Sounds like the major he wants to invent is…machine learning.
Once again this has to stop that's 26 schools that 1 person did not get accepted to and would have went, but kudos to bruh. He better join APhiA
So privileged yet so humble, I applaud him.
So proud of you Jonathan! Ignore the adult haters who are so miserable they have to harass a high schooler. You’re amazing!! So proud 🙂
That's incredible! This guy is a real genius. Congratulations
Congratulations young man. You will be anything you want.
Wow! I feel like an underachiever.
