A Nigerian boy received praise from Nigerians after breaking two records at a US school.
18-year-old Timia De Lacun became a black attorney at South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida. He has also made history again by recording the best GPA ever in college.
“Being from a low-income community, that generally means a ton of the way I’ve been mentioned before,” Adelakun said in an ABC News interview.
5.604 Timi, who features the GPA, is the youngest of three siblings, both parents not attending college.
His main accomplishment was said to be somewhat faint, as his father, who had been deported over a decade ago, is not there to celebrate with him.
Adelakun’s achievements are the result of years of financial struggle. At his young age, a teenager had to assist his mom’s bills by engaging in side hustle like graphic design and photography.
To save money for my family, I sometimes went to high school if I missed the bus.
