Can't wait for the day when we stop thinking of it about ourselves

Can't wait for the day when Black American parents start instilling enough confidence, self-esteem and drive in their children to study in these stem fields

Congrats to this young man! This is exactly what we all should be going to school and using our degrees for

His grades got him the quality education. The middle school where he was (in Houston) was not just ghetto,its across from a rundown club with a lot of drug activity. The neighborhood is horrible. i think thats one of the schs we were voting to close down.

The high sch he went to is one of the best in Houston,they hand pick the brightest kids from middle schs who are interested in health professions. They are nurtured for those careers and most have multiple full paid scholarships to universities of their choice.

My point is,he worked hard from a young age,thrived in a horrible middle sch and it opened doors for him.


Maybe when we ALL...
Congratulations. One story where he thrived despite his circumstance

I don't entertain the pull yourself up by your bootstraps argument from white people, won't do it on bhm

Southern: the 'pull yourself up by your bootstrap' is the immigrant way of thinking, such as this kid...come from nothing and make something of yourself despite your circumstances. Open those doors yourself coz no one will open them for you. 

Afro: yes, definitely African parents LOL
