Harris earned three degrees from WashU, including a Master's in Computer Science. She boosted her ACT score from 16 to 32, with a remarkable jump to 35 in math in just 7 months. She was then offered $1.5 million in college scholarships.

Presented by Angelica Harris,
Founder & CEO at Top Tutors for Us

"Only 3% of Black students hit the ACT college readiness benchmark, according to the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education. I created Top Tutors for Us so that Black students could finally have a test prep company that's made for them. Our tutors reflect our community by inspiring our students and improving their overall skills."
