North Dakota teen graduates college, then high school in the same month
May 24, 2021
WEST FARGO - Fifteen days before Seljon Akhmedli finished high school classes, she graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from North Dakota State University.
Although the 17-year-old has already finished her undergraduate degree, she still has an advanced placement economics test to take and an essay to write to complete high school, but come this fall she's off to Northwestern University near Chicago with a full ride scholarship to study for her Ph.D. in mathematics.
"If you had told me a year ago that this was going to happen, I wouldn't have believed it. Right now, it's a mixture of emotions, but overall I am very happy and grateful," Akhmedli said.
