Jeramy Botwe has a lot to smile about. The 17-year-old high school senior got into all 15 of the colleges he applied to, including eight Ivy League schools.
The universities include Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Brown, Dartmouth, Rice, Columbia, Cornell, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Duke, Penn, the University of Texas, the University of Houston and the University of Chicago.
Botwe, who attends the Harmony School of Advancement in Houston, Texas, is the “class of 2019” valedictorian and holds a 4.51 GPA.
He is also president of the National Honor Society, director of Key Club, co-captain of a science club and treasurer of his student council.
Although he hasn’t decided which school he will attend, Botwe knows he’ll pursue a degree in pre-med. He plans to become a doctor so he can focus on research and find a cure for diseases like ALS and MS.
Raised by a single father, Botwe attributes his success to hard work. He studies at least two hours a day, plans his weeks in advance and believes that people should always try to better themselves.
His focus has paid off. Congratulations Jeramy!
