“My grandma has always been an inspiration for me, and a role model. She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s always bragged about me to her friends and has made me feel so loved,” Nina added.
Nina’s father, Darren Mitchell, expressed happiness to see his daughter achieve her goal of graduating as the top of the class. “I know Nina has gotten a lot of attention for her academic achievement and leadership skills, but why I’m most proud of my daughter is she is a good person,” Mitchell told GMA.
“She treats people with kindness and respect. She has a wonderful heart and is just a great human being.” he added.
Nina was accepted to Harvard University, Stanford, Northwestern and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign – where she will attend as a business major to pursue her dream of becoming a Lawyer.
