Michael Brown: High School Student Receives Full Ride to 20 Universities: What We Know

High school student Micheal Brown has a big decision ahead of him. On Tuesday, news surfaced that the high school student has received a full ride to 20 universities, among them are Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Brown has worked hard for his acceptances. To date, he has a stunning 4.68 GPA.

Speaking to ABC News, Brown's mother said that her son "wants his achievement to inspire other kids and that if they work hard and use their resources, they can do anything."


He Hopes to Go to Law School

Eventually, Brown hopes to study political science and then earn a law degree. His mother states that he has an idea of which college he wants to attend, but he hasn't disclosed that information at this time.

Brown tells KHOU about his future, “Politics is the route for making changes on a bigger scale and working with people in the community."

In the video above, Brown breaks down into tears when he learns that he was accepted to Stanford, which KHOU says is the "school of his dreams."

The teen tells the outlet, "I was certainly nervous,” said Brown. “I study a considerable amount I think.”

He Is Part of Several Extracurricular Activities

Brown's extracurricular activities certainly played some role in his being accepted to so many schools. He is part of the Varsity Debate Team, the Key Club, Young Democrats, HISD’s Emerge program and 100 Black Men of Houston.

Brown says that his mother, Berthinia, has inspired him along the way. The proud mother tells KHOU, "I lost three babies before I had Michael. So, I just wanted to be the best mother that I could be to him."

"Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos..."

Heath Ledger's Joker says this in 2008's The Dark Knight but it could also apply to the presidency of Donald Trump. From defying subpoenas, introducing sweeping policy changes to his own staff through tweets, fostering a revolving-door administration, abruptly deserting allies, and, of course, the ceaseless bullying.

The President and the Clown Prince of Crime have both been agents of some degree of chaos.

So it may not come as a surprise that the Joker joins the campaign of a Trump-like character in the latest issue of Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
