Georgia teenager Sydney Wilson makes history as the youngest student ever to be accepted into Spelman College. Wilson was once teased for being too smart and she’s able to prove how much she doesn’t care what they think as she attends college in the fall. Wilson is excited to be part of the distinguished alumnae that includes actress Keisha Knight Pulliam, politician Stacey Abrams, writer Alice Walker, and many more.
