18-year-old Nigerian boy breaks two records in U.S.

18-year-old Nigerian boy breaks two records in U.S.

An 18-year-old  Nigerian boy identified as Timi Adelakun, is being celebrated after he broke two records in his school in the U.S.

According to reports the 18-year-old became the first black valedictorian of South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida. Also, the student got the highest GPA ever recorded at the school.

"Coming from a low-income community, it means a lot in general because of the way I was brought up," Adelakun said in a telephone interview with THEWATCH NEWS.

Timi, who has a 5.604 GPA, is the youngest child of three siblings and neither of his parents attended college.

He said that his major accomplishment is somewhat bittersweet because his father  - who was deported over a decade ago - won't be there to celebrate with him.

Adelakun's achievement comes after years of financial struggles.

At his young age, the teenager has had to help his mum pay bills by engaging in side hustles, such as graphic design and photography. To save money for the family, he sometimes walked to school if he missed the bus.
