Nigerian-American kid wins over $2m scholarship to study in any top US university of his choice, sets record

Rotimi Kukoyi, a smart and brilliant Nigerian-American kid, was admitted to all 15 of the top institutions in the country as a result of his exceptional high school achievement.

Rotimi, a graduate of Hoover High School in Glendale, Alabama, was named the institution’s top student. As the son of immigrants from Nigeria, he claimed that he had always been motivated to complete high school in the United States.

“As a child of immigrants who came to the United States to secure a better future for themselves and their children through the American education system, I’ve always aspired to graduate from high school,” he wrote on Instagram.

“The past 13 years of hard work have paid off, and I’m incredibly optimistic for what lies ahead. I’m thankful to the close relationships that have supported me throughout this journey, and I’m excited to watch my friends continue to succeed from afar,” he added.

Rotimi received admission to all of the Ivy League universities, including Harvard University, Yale University, Stanford University, Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt University, and Duke University, among others, with a scholarship worth more than $2 million per outlet as a result of his exceptional performance.

After becoming the first-ever Black National Merit Scholar of the school, Rotimi also established a new exceptional benchmark for Black students in the institution.

He ultimately made the decision to enroll at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the United States, where he will use the esteemed Morehead-Cain Scholarship to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Health Policy and Management.
