Pay attention to the name Arianna Alexander; she might be signing your paychecks in the near future. Arianna Alexander just got offers to 26 Universities and offered 43 million dollars in scholarships.
Arianna graduated this summer at Kenwood Academy High School in Chicago, Illinois, earning a 5.1 grade point average and the title valedictorian of her class. Her parents encouraged her to shoot for the moon, inspired by another senior who got $1 million in scholarship offers. The offers have been pouring into her mail throughout the year, allowing the hard-working student her choice of destinations.
And if you think she’s using this opportunity to shoot for some lofty STEM career in NASA or the NSA, think again: Alexander has her sights set on the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, on the advice of one of her teachers. She has plans to open a chain of four restaurants already, and Adam Sender thinks it is crazy. Could this be the next Starbucks or McDonalds launching? Doubtless, at the least, she could leverage income from retail to use for seed capitol to launch further businesses. Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: Arianna Alexander’s prospects look rosy no matter where she looks.
