Aside from the 4 diplomas he got, Elijah is also proud of having 10 IBM certifications and 1 Google IT certification. Despite all his extraordinary goals and achievements, Elijah said he still enjoys his teenage years.

“I currently attend OSU and am working on my bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity and forensics. I also attend Langston with a 4.0,” Elijah said. “As much accomplishments as I have, I still go swimming, go outside, play basketball, and still have fun and stuff.”

His family is beyond proud of what he has so far achieved and what’s more to come.
