Michael Love, a high school senior at Cornerstone Health and Technology High School, has been accepted to 41 colleges and offered more than $300,000 in scholarships, one of his acceptance letters recently came with a full ride offer.

“I got told a lot when I was younger, I couldn’t do this, I couldn’t do that. So I just wanted to show people I’m better than what they think I am,” Michael told ABC7 News. When he first started high school he struggled, “I just wanted to improve myself because I didn’t know what I was going to do after high school,” said Michael. He now wants to be an aerospace engineer.

He applied to more than 50 schools for this fall. “I thought he was crazy when he told me he was applying to so many schools,” said, Micole Ewing, Michael’s mother. The letters quickly started coming in, one after another, from all over the country.

“Every time I open up a letter, I jumped up and down, we praised God. I’m super proud of him,” said Ewing.

Michael is an inspiration to us all and proof that when you put your mind to it, you can do anything.
