It’s tough enough to get into one Ivy League school. But all eight? That’s what happened to Kwasi Enin a first generation American from Ghana student at William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach, N.Y., this week. The 17-year-old received acceptance letters from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale. So where will he end up?
“I’m thinking of being a cardiologist or neurologist,” said Enin, who lives in Shirley. “A doctor is a community leader, a protector, someone who people turn to … when they need help. Kwasi Enin has confirmed he is going to Yale. Enin plans to study music and medicine.
Well done Erin! Wow, talk about the American Dream. Parents move from Ghana and their son goes to Yale.
