Kimberly Anyadike at 15 years old (now 18) became the first African American teen to fly across the United States! She is now a finalist in Seventeen Magazine’s Pretty Amazing Cover contest, where one inspiring, extraordinary reader will be chosen to have her story featured in the magazine along with her picture on the cover ! Interview with Kimberly coming FRIDAY! :)- Vote for Kim here:http://www.seventeen.com/fun/articles/pretty-amazing-cover-model

And also she was Vice President of her class.
And she’s already finished a year’s worth of college credit.
And also she’s getting her pilot’s license within the year.
Oh and she’s going to UCLA.
To become a doctor.
So she can join Doctors Without Borders.
And fly herself out to treat patients.

I mean I’m not telling you what to do or anything.
But all the cool kids are voting for her sooooo

SIGNAL BOOST SIGNAL BOOST SIGNAL BOOST BECAUSE THE WORLD NEEDS TO HEAR ABOUT BADASS BLACK GIRLS

Holy crap. Is there anything this extraordinary young woman can’t do? I wish I’d been 1/10th that cool in any part of my life so far.
There needs to be a TV show based on her character or something. Seriously. I can see how awesome it would be. The adventures of a teen flying ace - full of action! adventure! friendship! laughs! drama!
