David’s mother, Ronya Balogun mentioned that  selecting the right school for their son was a challenge for them due to him being young and extremely intelligent. She added that though they want to see their son excel, they feared having him attend classes on campus with peers who would be twice his age.

“David is learning based on his capabilities, It’s his civil right. Not based on his age or not based on what the education system tells him, and I’m grateful that SNHU took this step to take a risk on my son, ” Ronya Balogun said.

David said he will be receiving his lectures from the comfort of his own home through the Southern New Hampshire University online program with the hope of earning his degree in 2025 at the age of 12.
