Tamilore Awolesi Offered Scholarships By 7 US Ivy League Universities by Cosbyrich: 9:14am On May 13, 2019
NIGERIAN-born teenager Tamilore Awolesi has been offered scholarships by seven US Ivy League universities after emerging as the top student at Hertfordshire’s Haberdashers Aske’s Boys’ School in Elstree.



Teenager Tamilore will now be studying at Stanford University in the US after receiving a set scholarships from several institutions. Apart from Stanford, other citadels of learning that offered him scholarships included Princeton University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College and Brown University.




Most notably, he was named a John Jay Scholar at Columbia, a distinction given to only 30 students out of 2,100 students offered places in 2019. A combination of his excellent academics, extra-curricular activities and impressive essays earned him the offers these offers.



A saxophonist and vocalist, Tamilore was also offered a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, Boston for an undergraduate degree in Jazz Studies following a successful audition and interview. He currently attends the Royal Academy of Music Saturday Jazz Programme in London and is involved in his school’s big band and jazz ensembles.



Tamilore said: “I am so excited and really looking forward to starting at a prestigious and renowned university such as Stanford. I am looking forward to joining the Nigerian Students Association, the Black Students Union, being part of the thriving Stanford jazz community and making the most of the entrepreneurial and academic possibilities available to me at Stanford.



“I am grateful to God for this opportunity to study in the US, which has been a dream of mine since Year 9. I encourage all young people to dream big, put in the work and ignore the haters.”



Passionate about representation in the black community, he is the founder and chair of Black Head Students Network which held its inaugural event, hosted by Coutts, titled A World of Possibilities, for 60 black students from 30 different schools. He also introduced his school’s very first celebration of Black History Month and founded it’s African Caribbean Society, where he is also chair.

shocked

A friend and brother recently said; "One of the worst things to happen to a man is to become successful on social media, with a large following, and let it get to your head to the point you fail to make a REAL LIFE. No wife. No kids. No real business. Just social media notoriety." Sad!

Young people are breaking grounds and driving innovations, setting businesses and creating software for benefits of humanity. Determine to LIVE in your life today.
