Another brilliant Black girl will make you deeply assess what you’re doing with your life.

According to Texas Lawyer, Haley Taylor Schlitz is a 16-year-old who’s already on track to graduate with an associate’s degree AND a bachelor’s degree in May. Her next stop is law school, and she’s already gotten accepted into nine schools.

Schlitz explained how her unconventional childhood education led her to this point:

“I went to public school until fifth grade. At the end of the year my parents pulled me out and started to home-school me because they didn’t like the way I was being taught. I was just being taught to pass the end-of-the-year test to get to the next grade. I wasn’t being taught to learn.”

She continued:

“I wasn’t in the gifted and talented program because they said I wasn’t allowed to be—that I couldn’t take the test. My parents got me privately tested and then home-schooled me after they determined that I was gifted. I was home-schooled up until I was 13 years old. I skipped quite a few grades. Then I graduated high school at 13 and went to the community college from 13 to 14, so I could get my core done. Then I got accepted into numerous different universities, and I went to Texas Woman’s University from 14 to 16. And now I’m here at 16 and I applied to numerous different law schools and I‘m going to law school.”

Schlitz has now decided to go to Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law after being accepted from a variety of schools including HBCUs Howard University, Southern University and Texas Southern University.

    Absolutely beautiful!! And sadly there are numerous stories like this that go overlooked and untold because black people are so intuned to the white powered press and the black negativity that they report on a daily. I’m not surprised by this young lady’s excellence look at the dummies cheating to get into Ivey league colleges and we have a 16 year old running circles around them with no Affirmative Action needed!
