See the 18-year old who becomes first black male valedictorian at High School in Oakland



Ahmed Muhammad, a student from Oakland, California, who is 18 years old, made history by becoming the first Black male valedictorian of his Oakland Technical High School.

Muhammad earned the top academic ranking in his class with a cumulative GPA of 4.73. He plays varsity basketball for the Bulldogs and is an exceptional athlete.

Along with that, Muhammad started Kits Cubed last year, a business that provides science instruction.

Children in elementary and secondary schools can enjoy doing experiments with the company’s amusing and reasonably priced science kits.

“Founding Kits Cubed was the culmination of all of the valuable lessons I learned throughout high school from so many amazing people,” Muhammad told KTVU.

“I’m glad we were able to create something meaningful before graduating.” However, Muhammad said it was just the start of endless possibilities for him.

He was accepted to the 11 universities he applied to, including Harvard, Princeton, UC Berkeley, Columbia University, and his “dream school” Stanford.

He hasn’t made up his mind, but he intends to major in both engineering and computer science.

Muhammad, who will be the first member of his family to attend college, is appreciative of his parents for setting a good example for him by working hard and setting high standards for themselves.

He wants to serve as an example for other young people so they can succeed. It’s a dream come true to be named valedictorian, he added.

“I hope that being the class valedictorian motivates those from similar beginnings to achieve the same success.
