Malachi and Rasul had to put their college education on hold to work at BJ's Wholesale Club after high school before they received a scholarship to Prince George's Community College.
The end of the tunnel for the twins became brighter shortly after Towson granted them both full scholarships.
They admit they received help, hence, are giving back to society. ''For us to get here, we received some help,'' said Malachi, according to Wbaltv11.
Where do they get funds?
Malachi and Rasul receive support directly from private donors and they also give cash from their pockets. The twins are set to graduate in December, and this will be the first time in their lives they'll have separate graduation ceremonies.
While Rasul Wright is a history major focusing on secondary education and the pre-law track, Malachi Wright is a biology major focusing on secondary education on the pre-dental track.
Man offers scholarships to students who graduated with second-class lower
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man identified as David Adefunmilayo has announced the launch of his new scheme which would assist graduates with second-class lower and third-class degrees.
Funmilayo said his scheme would be offering scholarships to graduates who left school with low grades. According to Funmi, grades in school, expecially for someone in the Nigerian system of education, should not determine how a person is viewed in society.
He further made reference to one of his brilliant friends who graduated with a second class lower but has lost opportunities despite being academically sound.
