Love Osunnuga proved that hard work pays off, especially when it comes to college entrance exams. The 15-year-old student scored perfect scores on the ACT, SAT, PSAT and AP exams.
“I would say I studied a lot, I took a lot of practice tests,” says Love, a senior at St. Joseph High School in Indiana.
After skipping two grades in school, Love will be 16 when she heads to college.
“I was just shocked, I thought you had to be a super genius, like, studied for months and prepared beforehand to get that kind of score,” Love says.
Love’s parents are proud of their daughter and say that her accomplishments aren’t typical. Her parents, one who is an ER doctor, and another a nurse, say that education was the most important thing in the household.
“In Nigeria, we already know that there’s nothing that can make your life worthwhile or better, except if you have a good education,” said her father Sunday. “Being in the best country in the world, having been given all the opportunities, we expect a lot from our kids.”
So what is their secret to raising Love?
“We lead by example,” they say.
Love says her top college choices are Notre Dame and University of Chicago and she wants to study dermatology.
