Thirteen-year-old Kimora Hudson is making history as the youngest student to be accepted into the University of West Georgia, proving that #blackgirlmagic transcends all possibilities.
The Douglass, GA native is currently enrolled in both high school and at UWG and didn’t actually think that she was a genius because she was just “doing what comes natural” to her.
“I’ve always raised my hand first in class. That just felt normal to me,” Hudson commented in an interview with AJC.com. “But when I started getting accepted into really advanced educational programs, I started thinking, ‘O.K., I’m really smart.”
Hudson, a ninth grader, is enrolled in the UWG’s Move on When Ready/Dual Enrollment program which is an academic acceleration initiative open to 10th-12th graders. As a result of this boost in her academic track, in two years, Hudson will not only be a high school graduate, but the young MENSA candidate will also have enough college credits to be classified as a junior.
Even though she’s still weighing her options as to what major to declare, the bubbly teenager has her sights set on a career in the science field as either a marine biologist, veterinarian, surgeon, or psychologist.
Whatever field she chooses to pursue, it is no doubt that she will unquestionably excel at it. To follow Hudson’s journey on Instagram, click here.
