Meet The 16 Year Old Morehouse Student Making Headlines
At just 16 years old, Stephen R. Stafford II has accomplished more than most of the general population.
He’s currently earning credits toward his TRIPLE major at Morehouse College — pre-med, mathematics and computer science. The genius has yet another achievement to add to his list. He made “The World’s 50 Smartest Teenagers.”
Stephen started at Morehouse College at 11 years of age because his mother, who was homeschooling him, could not keep up with his potential. The college student is also a talented classical pianist; he began to play the piano at the age of two. When asked about his exceptional abilities, the teen replies: “I’m just like any other kid. I just learn very, very quickly.”
Unfortunately Georgia has a law that says students cannot graduate from high school before the age of 16 years old, so technically the young man must complete that course work first. He will receive his college degrees just one year after this at the age of 17, then onward to Morehouse School of Medicine. He is on pace to graduate their at the tender age of 22 as a full blown medical graduate.
This young man has an amazing story and support system. He’s an inspiration to children and young adults around the world. Let’s make sure we share his story so we can continue to inspire and encourage many more!
Great job, Stephen! The world is waiting to find out what you do next! Do yo thang!!!
