“Wired Different,” the new content series from three-time NBA Champion Stephen Curry and Under Armour Basketball, explores those who are rewriting the future in their respective fields.
In the third episode, Stephen’s special guest is Mekhi Johnson, an academic prodigy from Baltimore who accomplished the extremely rare academic feat of getting accepted into all eight Ivy League universities.
So what drove Mekhi to crack the code of the challenging and competitive college application process?
“When I was six, I heard a radio story about someone who got into all eight Ivy League schools, and I said I’m going to do that,” Mekhi tells Stephen. “And even though I didn’t really kind of grasp the magnitude of what it took do that, I made a decision then and eventually acted on that.”
