A brilliant Ghanaian student identified as Kyle Ayisi has attained a remarkable feat after being accepted to 14 different universities in the United States including five Ivy League Schools.
Some of the schools include Princeton, Columbia, Yale, Harvard, University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Washington University, Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt.
Reflecting on his accomplishment, Kyle Ayisi, a final year student at Pickerington Central High School, told myfox28columbus.com that he was''raised to always work hard, and to work towards [his] goals.''
The genius Ghanaian student successfully combined his studies with extra school activities such as music, marching band, choir, student council, national honor society and others.
''I’m in diversity club, German club, I used to run track, and now I play volleyball,'' Ayisi said as he finished listing his extracurriculars.
With an extensive list of options, and many college visits later, Ayisi has decided to attend Princeton University in the fall.
The teenager told myfox28columbus.com that he tries to focus on what makes him happiest.
Ayisi credits his high ethical standards to his parents who moved to the United States years ago.
The soon to be Princeton University freshman is excited about his next chapter and plans to study cognitive science and neuroscience.
''I’m interested in how the brain works and how the brain functions,''Ayisi said.
Just recently, YEN.com.gh reported that Divine Narkotey Aboagye, a Ghanaian student of the Graduate Faculty of Illinois State University’s (ISU) School of Communication was adjudged Outstanding Graduate Student by the university.
The graduate student award is given annually to acknowledge a student who has showed unmatched excellence in teaching, research and service.
