Oakland Teenager Akintunde Ahmad Has 5.0 GPA, 2100 SAT Score and On His Way To Ivy League

Meet Akintunde Ahmad. He says he’s a regular “Oakland street dude” but he has a 5.0 GPA, a 2100 SAT score and is on his way to either Brown or Yale University.


He’s the first to tell you that his appearance throws people off, which is why he keeps his grades saved in his smartphone to show non-believers. Not only is he gifted in the classroom, but he also plays three instruments and has baseball scholarships on the table as well.
