Atlanta young lady gains admission to US universities, wins $2.2m scholarship
After being accepted into 29 universities throughout the country, Kamryn Stargell, a standout student from North Atlanta High School, has earned an impressive $2.2 million in scholarship prizes.
“I was so eager to enter. In an interview with Fox News 5 Atlanta, Kamryn stated, “I was mostly depressed because I was so concerned about applying and waiting to know whether I was going to get it.
She added that she began submitting applications to colleges and for scholarships as soon as she had the chance, even before she had finished high school.

She claimed that with her mother’s assistance, she was able to complete all of her applications in just five months.
Kamryn Stargell could not hide her joy and gratitude for having been awarded the scholarships as she is now set to pursue her dreams of becoming a medical doctor.
After all of the hard work we put in applying to them, it was really a breath of fresh air knowing I got into college, if I just got into one of them,” Kamryn said.
“Definitely just knowing that I won’t have to graduate with thousands and thousands of dollars in debt and being able to move on to my next step in my career without that financial burden is really just an overpowering feeling,” she added.
Kamryn’s mother, Kristie Stargell, explained that her daughter started her pursuit of excellence at a tender age. She said she expected her to secure a scholarship of $1 million.
“Honestly, my goal was to raise $1 million. But what if it went on? Wow! This is more than I could have ever anticipated, and we are incredibly blessed,” Kristie stated.
In reference to her aspirations for the future, Kamryn says she hopes to become a doctor.
“I absolutely want to work in the medical sector, either as an OBGYN or somewhere else. After undergrad, hopefully continuing on to medical school. That is my intention and strategy, Kamryn added.
After much deliberation, Kamryn decided to enroll at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
