Seventeen, Sought After, Brilliant...and Black



Most people who run into a six-foot-one inch tall African American male with locs would have their minds made up about him. But most people would be very, very wrong.

17-year old Akintunde Ahmad of Oakland has a perfect 5.0 GPA, a 2100 SAT score and multiple offers from prestigious schools like Yale, Brown, Columbia, Northwestern, the University of Southern California, UCLA, and Howard, to name a few. He will either study law or medicine.

He plays three musical instrument and is a whiz at baseball!

In the meantime, here's a video where Akintunde's accomplishments made the news!

Congratulations Akintunde. We're proud of you.

Best wishes and stay brilliant,
Rita Lorraine
