Guyanese-American Student, Kayla Stewart, accepted to 5 Ivy League Colleges
Kayla Stewart, a 2017 graduate of the Medical Arts Academy at the Gloucester Township Campus of Camden County Technical Schools (CCTS), was accepted into five of the eight ivy league colleges.
“Outside of my peers, my biggest motivation to succeed have been my parents,” she added. “They are immigrants from Guyana, a rather small, third world country in South America. They didn’t grow up with the resources I have, and yet they were still successful. That is one of the reasons they always expected me to excel. The road wasn’t always easy. It came with a lot of sacrifices. Many times I had to turn down hanging out with friends or my parents would take away my phone to tune out any distractions.”
