Meet the Teen Siblings Who Are Making History with Their Multiple College Degrees
October 12, 2023
A teenage brother and sister who are excelling in their studies well beyond what’s expected of their age came by “The Jennifer Hudson Show” to inspire other young kids to pursue a similar path and remind people that it’s cool to be smart.
Shania and Elijah Muhammad from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, are two incredible siblings who have gained national attention for making education history.
Shania, 16, is currently the youngest teacher in the United States and the youngest MBA candidate in Oklahoma.
Meanwhile, her brother, Elijah, 13, is a senior at Oklahoma State University and is working on receiving his bachelor’s degree when he graduates in April 2024. He is the youngest Black American in history to graduate with an associate's degree in cybersecurity, which he earned from Oklahoma City Community College.
Jennifer Hudson gifted $1,000 to help Shania provide equipment for her third grade classroom. And to help celebrate Elijah’s college graduation, she surprised the siblings with tickets for them and 10 of their friends to Six Flags!
