17-year-old exceptional boy gets over $1.5m scholarship to study in any US university

A brilliant 17-year-old boy named Omarion Ikaika Calloway has been awarded up to $1.5m worth of scholarships to enrol for his Bachelor’s Degree in any of the 21 universities he has been accepted into.

Omarion who graduated from the Park Crossing High School in Montgomery, Alabama, United States was accepted into 21 universities in the United States after an outstanding performance in High School.

Some of the schools that accepted him include; New York University, Howard University in Washington DC, and Hampton University in Virginia. “I’m a happy and grateful mother, and I am immensely proud of him,” Tiffany, Omarion’s mother said.

Omarion had a tough upbringing, at the age of 10, he became a caregiver for his grandmother and disabled autistic uncle. While his mother worked two jobs, he seized the reins of leadership and cared for them until she would arrive home. He was responsible for a variety of tasks including meal preparation, medicine administration, and ensuring that his uncle received his daily insulin injections to manage his diabetes.
