A 16-year-old homeschooled girl, Taylor Schlitz, graduated from Texas Woman’s University at the young age of 13 before she applied to nine different law schools.
One amazing story about the teen is that all of the law schools she applied to accepted her. According to Rising Africa, she was homeschooled after her mother withdrew her from public school because she lost trust in the education she was getting.
In an interview, she said that the education she was getting before her withdrawal only taught her how to read for grade sake and not for learning purpose.
She expressed gratitude for the decision her mother took to self-teach her at home, a decision which was said reoriented her career decision as she went towards studying law rather than a medical school.
The youngster continues to move forward as she said she wants to get to a point where she is doing things for herself and getting things done on her own terms.
According to her personal website, the inspiring teenager, is a public speaker who has graced so many occasions. In fact, there is a call for that on her online page.
Taylor has also won different awards too. Some of which are the Scholar for the Texas Woman’s University, National Honor Society for Educators, among several others.
She is also the author of The Home School Alternative, a book that makes case for homeschooling system as a good education system for people of colour.
