WOW! A 5.0?!! That’s amazing! 


#RP from @sancophaleague:
Akintunde Ahmad is a 6’1, 17 year Old Black Male from Oakland with dreadlocks. Defying the disadvantages and traps he had to overcome growing up he stands tall with 5.0 GPA and  2100 SAT score. The Oakland Technical School senior is also on the baseball team. He has be accepted to YALE and has offers from other IVY LEAGUE schools Columbia and Brown.

He told a story about when the recruiters came to his school to speak to him that everyone was looking at him funny when he walked into the library as if he was “lost or out of place”. “People looking at me funny is so common that it doesn’t stick out for me anymore, It’s something that I’ve gotten used to. I’ll leave this school and there will be teachers who never knew I was one of the people on the honor roll ” ~~Akintunde

Akintunde describes himself as “any other street dude on 98th Avenue” the neighborhood in which he grew up in. “That is underestimated and looked down upon”. SanCophaLeague Salute to Akintunde Ahmad!
