Reporters learned that the young athlete and salutatorian has settled on Howard University where he will be pursuing a programme in astrophysics. According to www.wltx.com, Richardson, a graduate of Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School, said that he actually worked towards making the mark.
”I wanted to have that good stress, having too many options rather than losing the option I wanted the most and not knowing where I wanted to go next,” Richardson said.
While in high school, he participated in extracurricular activities as an Eagle Scout and also an advocate against gun violence. And he did all that while working a job, too. Just like many students, he was unable to get the experience of being on campus at Howard University because of the prevailing coronavirus pandemic.
In spite of the current state of the world, however, Richardson has a bright future ahead of him and is already planning what he’ll do after graduating. Watch video of Richardson below.
