N’Nasseri Carew-Johnson isn’t the kind of girl who just sets goals. She achieves them and then some!
The beauty went viral recently when she posted a picture of her graduation gown draped in a plethora of honors cords.
She captioned it: “The only chains on my neck that matter.”
N’Nasseri excelled so much when she attended Westlake High School in California that she has earned a full scholarship to Stanford University.
She will be double majoring in Economics with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Theatre.
This is due to the 17-year-old’s hard work and extra – curricular activities.
“I have 17 cords, a magnet medallion, Principal Award, National Honor Society, Beta pins, and honors pins.” she told The Shade Room.
“Cords are only received if you’ve been in a club for two or more years. To name a few, [I’ve been in] SkillsUSA where I served as President for two years.”
“Student Government where I was Class President each of my 4 years in high school. National Honor Society, Drama Club and Strength Over Society (my organization).”
N’Nasseri’s is definitely is someone who puts her all into everything! Wow!
The high school graduate became every mother’s dream when she was selected for “The Disney Dreamers Academy.”
The academy is in association with with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine.
“I went on to be the 2016 Disney Dreamer of the year. My spoken word piece “The American Dream” was even broadcasted on the Disney Channel.”
“I created and founded two organizations (Strength Over Society and Friends’ Birth Connection) and one product line (Creez Creation).”
“SOS is an organization dedicated for giving youth space to speak on various social issues. We have members in three states and are hoping to launch at another school this fall.”
“I created Friends’ Birth Connection, I founded to connect kids with other children in shelters, to gift them on their corresponding birthday.”
The driven teen has traveled to over 10 countries doing charity work with organizations like Girls Going Global, and on behalf of her organization.
“I describe myself as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and dreamer, as all of my service and career work involves giving back to others and advocating for equality.”
“At every event I speak at I always say try to instill this: “you cannot be powerful, you cannot be impactful, and you cannot be happy living in a dream that is not destined to be yours!”
Congratulations N’Nasseri! Keep Winning!
