“Being the youngest in my class, some teachers and some of my peers looked down on me and didn’t believe I was ready yet,” he told us. “I excelled in my classes in order to prove them wrong. Not to mention, at times I would be the only African-American in the class.”

Congratulations, young king! We wish you much success!!
