An extraordinary 18-year-old boy has made history as the first black male valedictorian at Westfield High School in Houston, Texas to go on to Harvard University in the United States.

Young Black American hopes to inspire other young Black men to strive and never give up to achieve their goal.

“My story can help other young black men know that just because society says something about you or there’s a stigma or stereotype that surrounds you about being a black man doesn’t necessarily mean you’re limited to it. ‘ Tatum said.

“I have an award named after me in SpringISD titled the Tatum Award for Young Authors, and after being accepted to 7 Ivy Leagues and Stanford, Rice, UCLA, and UC Berkeley, I have the privilege of attending Harvard in the fall. But it wasn’t easy” He added.

Tatum has received more than $700,000 in scholarships and has been accepted into several universities, including Ivy League schools.
