Isaiah L. White Sr. is a driven African-American man who graduated with a doctorate (PhD) from Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware, in the United States.

Dyslexia was one of the many problems that forced Dr. Isaiah L. White Sr. to take special education programs. He was reportedly ridiculed by others as a child because of his impairment, and several of his teachers predicted that he would never amount to anything in life.

He added that having to repeat classes numerous times had annoyed him. He said that he completed high school at a level equivalent to the seventh grade in certain subjects and the fifth grade in others. He repeated the same remedial math course 12 times in college, and throughout the first few years of his studies, he only attended remedial subjects. Additionally, he was suspended and on academic probation.

He continued by saying that his persistence paid off in the end, as his grade point average gradually improved and he went on to earn his bachelor’s degree.
