We all know it – that helpless, world-is-ending feeling that creeps into play whenever CNN.com is put into your browser’s search bar.
Thank God for stories like Akintunde Ahmad.
Outwardly, the 17-year-old doesn’t appear to be any different from his classmates. But the Oakland teen has one of the most impressive resumes that one can have at such an age: a 5.0 GPA, 2100 SAT score, a successful baseball career. Naturally, Ivy League schools are tripping over themselves to land Ahmad, with Yale offering him a spot on their baseball team.
We can tie in Akintunde’s success with whatever Tupac The Rose That Grew From Concrete quote we want, but just watch the video and appreciate the heartwarming story for yourself. Your feels will thank you.
