Jada Jerrelle Brown, Black Teen Makes History

Jada Jerrelle Brown, an African American college-bound student from New Orleans, has been accepted into 141 colleges and universities and awarded $5 million in scholarships.

“I’m very happy, blessed, thankful, I was a little overwhelmed but I’m good,” Brown told WGNO.

With over $5 million scholarships under her belt, she has received the highest amount of scholarship offers in the U.S. given to one student so far this year.

Meanwhile, Brown has already chosen where she will attend college out of the 141 offers. She has decided to attend Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge where she plans to study dentistry.
