indianaRaven Osborne is a senior at the 895-student 21st Century Charter School in Gary and will receive her high school diploma on May 22nd. However, the teen recently earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology with a minor in early childhood education from Purdue University Northwest on May 5th.  How is this possible???

“Yeah, they think I’m lying,” Raven told CBS News. Except, she’s telling the truth.

Osborne began taking classes at a local community college as a high school freshman and soon earned an associate’s degree in general studies. Then, she decided to become the first in the school’s history to earn a bachelor’s degree while still enrolled in high school.

“When I was younger, I was labeled with a learning disability,” Osborne said. “My mother always told me I could do whatever I wanted to do in life.” Osborne admitted it was tough taking both high school and college classes and that there were times when she wanted to quit, but her mother constantly encouraged her.

Raven Osborne of Gary, Indiana is a true inspiration.

Can you say *Overachiever.*..!….lol

But the truth is, I stories like this. Young, Black-Americans accomplishing great things, especially in the field of academics.

Ms. Osborne is obviously an incredible young lady (her mother did a great job) and I wish her nothing but continued Success.

Thanks for sharing this DJ.

There are a lot of such students who keep talent but they need a platform where they can showup their talent and achieve something in their future life. I think the education board must deeply look into this matter and should start working on the creation of such a platform. There are several online education platforms that do provide a way for such students.
