Teen Founder Who Became The First Black Valedictorian At His High School Finishes First Year At Stanford With A 4.05 GPA

Ahmed Muhammad continues to level up. The Oakland teen who went viral after launching a science education business for kids has officially closed out his first year at Stanford with a 4.05 GPA. Previously, Muhammad touched the world when he became the first Black valedictorian to graduate from the Oakland Technical High School. What’s more, he credits his most recent success to the skills he learned throughout high school. “My classes at Stanford in terms of how I approached them weren’t too much different from what my teachers required of me in high school,” said the 19-year-old in an interview with KTVU. “I didn’t understand why they were expecting so much in high school, why they were tough on me, but now, come to college, I’m directly applying what they taught me.”
