Everyone has a story to tell, but for Omarion Ikaika Calloway, becoming a storyteller might just be the ultimate dream career and he’s one step closer! According to USA Today, the high school senior has been accepted into 21 colleges and universities and could soon be on his way to his dream school as the first in his family to ever pursue higher education. Calloway, who is committed to becoming a storyteller, credits his grandmother for encouraging him to apply to his dream school, New York University. At the age of 10, he became her caretaker and would even read her some of the stories he’d written upon tucking her in for bed at night. Now that she has since transitioned, he aims to keep the dreams she had for him alive through his work. “My grandmother…inspired me to apply to NYU,” he said in an interview with the outlet.
