Salute to Michael Brown, 17 year old,high school student Michael Brown will be enrolled in one of America’s top Universities next year, he just has to decide which one. Brown applied to 20 top colleges in the United States and was accepted to all with full scholarship, plus $260,000 he’s earned in scholarships on his own. Harvard University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Stanford University, Northwestern University, Georgetown University, Vanderbilt University, Johns Hopkins University, Pomona College, Claremont McKenna College, Williams College, University of Texas-Austin, University of California-Berkeley, Amherst, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Tulane University, University of Michigan, UC-Davis, UC-Irvine. To just name a few, now that's Black excellence !

Brown was raised by his single parent mother,Berthinia, in the 3rd ward of Houston,TX. You can imagine the challenges he had to face within his community. Yet that did not distract him from his goals, he always dream on going to Stanford University. He also participates in several extracurricular activities including Lamar’s Varsity Debate Team, the Key Club, Young Democrats, Houston Independent School District's Emerge program and 100 Black Men of Houston, while maintaining a 4.68 GPA. The average high school GPA to get into Harvard was 4.10, Yale: 4.19, Princeton: 3.90.

Brown would like to study political science then earn a law degree. He’d like to work at a law firm and run for public office.

“Be helpful. Dream big. Don’t be afraid,” Brown said. “Be proud of your family, love yourself, love your community and then share your story. Inspire other people to really reach for the stars and achieve their dreams.”

Hope to see this young man to go on to do great things.
