So the wind blew. What a competitive year. Rejections, wait-lists and acceptances. America claimed its own overseas kids. If you were an American or Green Card holder, you survived the threat of the competitiveness....
A few beat the odds and gained a spot, Bravo! All year, it was a roller coaster ride. Tears, smiles, letters, packages....Let us remember, the ball is now in your court, you make the school, not the other way around.
I hear the whispers of "This is Trump territory, will my black son be safe? My black daughter?" Today is the memorialization of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. THe more things change, the more they remain the same...Come to the Farewell and let me equip you with the arsenal to handle the American society. Tall order, but we have made of it what we will. You must excel. End of story. Too many folks have lost their lives, blood, sweat and tears....let's make them all proud.
So yes, I have seen the story on Howard University. I will advise you all to pay close attention, the acceptances for this year are hinged on the theft of the US$400,000 by a student employee there. Things look a bit bleak. We will see. Watch this page.
