Johnson Davilma, who recently graduated as the valedictorian of Doris Johnson High School and was accepted by a number of colleges receiving several partial scholarships, may not be able to attend college due to issues with his citizenship.
Davilma, who wanted to travel abroad to become an actuary, may not realize that dream, as he was born to illegal Haitian parents.
That, coupled with not having stable finances, has created a major hurdle for the teen who said he just wants to pursue his dreams.
Davilma cannot utilize the scholarship opportunities provided by the government because of his immigration status and he is also too young to apply for citizenship.
He is now asking anyone who will listen to provide him with some assistance to help him make it to school abroad.
