Read the Essay That Got Kwasi Enin Accepted to Every Ivy League School.

 
The proof is in the writing.
Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old from Long Island, New York, made the news recently when he was accepted into all eight Ivy League schools.

Now, thanks to the New York Post, you can read the essay that made that possible.

Enin's essay, "A Life In Music," discusses his pastimes as a violist and singer. He talks about playing classical repertoire, singing doo wop, and performing as Big Jule in Guys and Dolls, saying that without music, "my life would not be half as wonderful as it is today."

Enin traces his happiness to his decision not to take a simple music appreciation course in order to meet his state's music requirement. By electing instead to take an orchestra course, Enin writes that "music [became] the spark of my intellectual curiosity," helping him apply what he learned studying music to literature and mathematics.

Enin's essay is a stirring argument for the importance of music education in a young person's life. While he wants to go pre-med as an undergraduate, it's clear that the impact music has had on his life is a positive and lasting one.

You can read the full text of the essay below.
