Rp #becauseofthem Congratulations to Carson Huey-You on becoming the youngest person to graduate from Texas Christian University! 
14-year-old Carson just went from Texas Christian University's youngest student to its youngest graduate. 
Over the weekend, Carson walked across the stage at the Fort Worth college to receive his bachelor's degree in physics and officially became the youngest person to graduate from Texas Christian University (TCU). The child prodigy, who also minored in math and Chinese (by the way, he speaks Mandarin Chinese fluently) was homeschooled until the age of 5, when his mother discovered that he was learning at an eight-grade level. By age 10, Carson graduated from high school and at 11, started his collegiate journey at Texas Christian University. 
Throughout his college career, Carson learned how to handle difficult classes and overcome obstacles, such as poor test scores. He advises other 14-year-olds with big dreams: "Try to stay focused on what you are doing. Even if it seems really, really challenging and hard to get through, stay with it."

So! I just learned that Annie Malone invented the very first hot comb, I always thought it was Madam CJ Walker but it turns out Annie did it 4 years before her AND Madam CJ Walker studied at Annie's school, the first educational institution in the US dedicated to the study and teaching of black cosmetology #BOSS Miss Annie THANK YOU! I hot comb my hair after washing and blow drying, it's the only way to get it super straight ✨ #becauseofthem #blackgirlmagic #blackhistory

Everything we do is because of them, it's not Veterans Day, but Thank You!! #becauseofthem #soblessed #usa🇺🇸

A big reason 2016 was so lit 🖤 #becauseofthem #thatsnotall

Where do I start? On Wednesday afternoon I started having pains in my abdomen, and drove to the urgent care. After they did a CT scan, the doctors said that I had appendicitis. They immediately transported me to the hospital, and I had emergency surgery. Thankfully, I sought medical attention before the appendix ruptured. These past few days have taught me how to slow down...but also helped me to realize that I am surrounded by love. Colleagues picked up our kids and took them to school and daycare, friends and family visited the hospital, called, and prayed for us. My mother-in-love caught a flight the same day to help us. My husband has waited on me hand and foot to ensure that I am resting. Then today, students from my first course as a faculty member at Georgia State University stopped by my home with a basket of goodies and balloons. I am completely overwhelmed! These Three Musketeers will be graduating with their master's degree next week, and I won't be there to witness it. However, my dad cleared his savings in December to purchase this expensive regalia so that I would be ready for future commencement ceremonies. This may not be the stadium, and I may not be authorized to confer any degrees, but it felt so good to celebrate the accomplishment of such AMAZING Black scholars! Congratulations to Scholars Ejike, Dorsey, and Amos! They will be the BEST middle school science teachers in the metro Atlanta area! #guaranteed #becauseofthem #blessingsonblessings #nowbacktobed #ineedmymeds

The rewards of being a mother and never giving up on your child, are priceless👌

: Look at what the Lord has done!
When I think of my Mother, I think of the sacrifices she's made, she left Bowie State University her senior year to take care of my siblings and I and raise a family alongside our Dad.

The love she continually pours out and constant determination through the good and bad, I know it hasn't always been easy but she's beat cancer and every other obstacle that's come her way. She never gave up.
To see her complete the (first leg) of her educational journey and walk across the stage has a blessing and I could not be prouder.
Congratulations to her and the class of 2017 at Salisbury U! #Classof2017 #becauseofthemwecan #MyShero #myinspiration #becauseofthem #IssaGraduate #IssaQueen #BlackWomenRock #BlackExcellence #BlackGradsMatter

This was an epic moment for both my cousins. I'm so glad they had the chance to experience and learn about John Carlos and Tommie Smith. Carlos, an athlete turned author and activist is known for his Black Power Salute during the 1968 Summer Olympics. "Because of them"✊🏾 .
