Philadelphia Teen Earns More Than $1M in Scholarships From 18 Colleges

Philadelphia Teen Earns More Than M in Scholarships From 18 Colleges

17-year-old Shanya Robinson-Owens got accepted into 18 colleges and received over $1 million in scholarships. “I was really shocked. I didn’t know what to do,” the Philadelphia native told Good Morning. “I didn’t know if I should cry, laugh. I didn’t know what to do.”

Owens got accepted 18 schools including La Salle University, Temple University, Moravian College, Lincoln University, and Cabrini University, alone with receiving $1,074,260 in total scholarships.

“We are overjoyed,” Owens aunt Christine Owens told Good Morning America. “I knew she wouldn’t have a problem getting into colleges, but we didn’t know they would award her this much money in scholarship funds.”

She currently studies at George Washington Carver High School of Engineering and Science,  and has a 3.2 GPA. The scholar said her favorite subject in school is chemistry and she plans to study psychology in college. As of now, she has been accepted to 18 out of the 20 colleges she applied to. She says she’d take some time to wait to hear from the two other schools before checking out the campuses and making a decision.  Shanya said that to achieve educational goals, it’s important to be patient and stay focused.

“If you need to have some time away, it’s OK. You can tell your teachers that because they know you’re stressed” she said.
