Meet Nicholas Johnson who graduated as the first-ever black valedictorian of Princeton University in New Jersey, United States. He broke the school’s 250-year-old record.

The Young man bagged a Bachelor’s degree in operations research and financial engineering from the Ivy League school and the interesting part was that he came out top of his class and was named valedictorian.

Nicholas Johnson told CNN “It feels empowering being Princeton’s first Black Valedictorian holds special significance to me particularly given Princeton’s historical ties to the institution of slavery.”

While he was studying at the university, he participated in internships at Google, Oxford University and the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms. He also served as co-president of Engineers Without Borders.

Furthermore, Johnson said that his favorite memories at the university were those spent with his friends and classmates. He said he would always remember the stimulating discussions often at late night about their beliefs, cultures and environments where they were raised, the state of the world right now and how they would be contributing positively to it the little way they can.

Congratulations to him!!
