Thirteen-year-old Elijah Muhammad, an African American student from Oklahoma City, has achieved an extraordinary milestone by becoming the youngest individual to graduate with dual degrees in Cybersecurity and Computer Science.
Elijah’s remarkable accomplishments continue to make history, as he earned four diplomas this year alone. Just a year ago, he made headlines by becoming the youngest Black college student in Oklahoma when he enrolled at Oklahoma City Community College. Most recently, Elijah reached another groundbreaking achievement by becoming the youngest African American to graduate college with a degree in computer science and cybersecurity from Oklahoma State University, according to his family.
When his father explained the significance of his accomplishment, Elijah began to grasp the full impact. Apart from his four diplomas, Elijah is also proud of his ten IBM certifications and one Google IT certification. Despite his exceptional goals and achievements, he still finds time to enjoy his teenage years, engaging in activities such as swimming, playing basketball, and having fun outdoors. Elijah’s family is immensely proud of his current achievements and eagerly anticipates what he will accomplish next. His sister, Shania Muhammad, who recently graduated college at the age of 15, describes him as the smartest person she knows and admires his unique talents and abilities.
