An exceptional 13 -year -old African American boy named Elijah Muhammad graduated from Oklahoma State University(OSU) in the United States with two degrees in Computer science and Cybersecurity

A year ago, Elijah made history when he was admitted to college as the youngest black student in the state. Elijah remained consistent in his academic excellence and set another record as the youngest African- American to graduate college with two degrees. He also earned four diplomas.

Speaking about his achievement, Elijah said he did not understand the impact of the feat he made until his Dad explained to him how exceptional he was.

“At first, I didn’t really understand the full impact of it until my dad fully explained it and was like, ‘You’re really doing this, you’re the youngest to ever do it,” he narrated.

“I currently attend OSU and I’m working on my bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity and forensics. I also attend Langston with a 4.0,” Elijah said. “As much accomplishments as I have, I still go swimming, go outside, play basketball, and still have fun and stuff.”
