My name is Akintunde Ahmad, and I am a senior at Oakland Technical High School. I am aware that many of you have heard about my story recently in the news. It is true, I am headed to one of the nations top universities, although I have not yet decided which one. However, at these schools my expected family contribution is still in the range of $17,000 to $28,000. That is why I would greatly appreciate any donations, as many people have expressed that they would like to help me with college tuition in any possible.
Thank you in advance,
what happens to those kids? the ones that clearly showcase talent but can’t for the life of them progress academically. where do they go? what does the system do to/for them when they can’t afford the alternatives? when they don’t have enough economic stability to be put where they can be attended? nothing. we’re put aside and left to rot thinking we deserved it.
shout out to all the black kids that are about to become the first person in their families to graduate from college this spring.
while you’re freaking out about finals, graduation, employment & life in general, don’t forget take a few minutes to let the pride sink in and bask in your glory.
our people were enslaved and a few generations later, you’re about to graduate from college! you’re amazing.
