Young African-American man whose teachers said will not achieve success proves them wrong, bags PhD from US university

A motivated African-American man named Isaiah L. White Sr. received his doctorate (PhD) from Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware, in the country.

One of the many issues that Dr. Isaiah L. White Sr. faced that necessitated him enrolling in special education programs was dyslexia. According to reports, he was teased as a child for his disability, and numerous of his teachers said he would never amount to anything in life.

Despite all the challenges he encountered, Isaiah persisted in his determination to succeed. In a book he wrote in 2019, Isaiah detailed his issues, which include dyslexia, dyscalculia, an audio processing disorder, eyesight loss, a poor understanding of comprehension, and many others.

He also mentioned how frustrating it had been to have to repeatedly redo classes. According to him, he graduated from high school at a level that was about equal to the fifth grade in certain subjects and the seventh grade in others. In college, he took the same remedial math course 12 times, and during his first few years of study, he only took remedial courses. He was also on academic probation and suspended.

He went on to claim that his determination ultimately paid off because his grade point average gradually increased and he was able to get his bachelor’s degree.

At the community college, he had a 2.3 GPA. After getting his bachelor’s degree with a 2.9 GPA, his master’s degree with a 3.0 GPA, and his doctorate with a 3.0 GPA, he received his doctorate in education with a 3.67 GPA, according to blacknews.
