Oakland Teen Akintunde Ahmad Earns 5.0 GPA, Accepted To Yale, Brown & Columbia
Once referring to himself as “an ordinary street dude,” Oakland teen Akintunde Ahmad is definitely not the ordinary student.
The Oakland Technical High School student has a 5.0 GPA and received a perfect 2100 score on the SATs. Affectionately called ‘Tunde by friends and family, Ahmad has also been accepted to Yale, Brown, Columbia, and UCLA, along with other esteemed universities.
But Ahmad hasn’t only focused on book smarts. He also plays three instruments and baseball. He may even attend college on a baseball scholarship.
