Dr Isaiah L. White was diagnosed with multiple learning disabilities and had to endure mockery from others. He has now graduated with a doctorate degree.
He was awarded his degree at the Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware.
The doctor is reported by BlackNews.com to have dyslexia, dyscalculia, audio processing disorder, visual impairment, comprehension weakness, and among others. Due to his numerous incapabilities, Isaiah has had to suffer in the hands of bullies including his own teachers.
Dr White's experiences have been so grim that he took the time to write an entire book on his life, which has been widely read by many people. It is reported that some of his teachers called him 'nothing' due to his condition.
His book was titled In A Class Called Special in which Dr White took the opportunity to explain the appalling experiences he had to endure due to his condition.
He went on to reveal that he had to sit for a specific maths remedial test 12 different times.
Dr White also recounted several times when he had to be on academic probation and suspension.
The GPA's he stated he had, lend credence to the fact that he has truly struggled through school.
The story of Dr Isaiah L. White shows that anything is possible to anyone who chooses to pursue their dreams with relentless determination.
Many people keep doing extraordinary works lately. Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Amira Nana Agyeman defied several odds to acquire a license to drive an Ayalolo bus; a feat that is uncommon among women.
Driving huge commuter buses is a male-dominated area as it involves intense stress and effort. Nana Agyeman has proven with her courage that it is possible for ladies to do it too.
