18-Year-Old Girl Graduates From US University Before Finishing Secondary School

Raven Osborne who is a brilliant 18-year-old girl has set a unique academic record and achieved one huge feat after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology even before completing her secondary school in the United States.

Raven earned her college degree two weeks before graduating high school and graduated as a straight-A student and the best in her class.

Raven started her High School journey at the 21st Century Charter School in Gary, Indiana, United States.

Sharing her journey with Teen Vogue, she shares that;

“When I was in 7th grade, I learned that 21st century paid for college credits, the books, and transportation. And my family and I all thought that was really awesome and hard to believe. […] That was a great motivation.”

“When I saw that I would earn my associate’s degree at the end of my 10th-grade year, my mother encouraged me to talk to [Kevin] Teasley, who was the superintendent of the school, and ask him about another program that would allow me to continue earning college credits. He and Mrs Teasley both told me that I could go as far as I wanted with the program,” 

“It was definitely a lot of work,” she says. In order to stay motivated, she says her mom, Hazel Osborne “did remind me that the goal wasn’t too far off, and I was near the finish line. And…I had support from GEO, I had support from some people at 21st century, so I was surrounded by support.”

“Maybe I didn’t do as much as my classmates have done, but I don’t feel like I sacrificed that much and I don’t have any college debt and that is amazing,” she says.
