My name is Azize Kanberoglu. I am 16 years old and from Turkey. I have been living in the United States for 3 years. I started 8th grade at Pinnacle Academy, then went to Fairfax High school for 9th grade to strengthen my English. In 10th grade I decided to come back to the Pinnacle Academy for the early college program. I graduated high school on 01/01/21, therefore, I finished high school a year and a half early. I am very happy that I chose Pinnacle Academy for the early college program because Pinnacle gave me the chance to make my dreams come true a year and a half earlier.
Hello everyone, my name is Dinara Nabiyeva. I am 16, going on 17 and finished high school this past summer. I’m currently enrolled and taking classes from George Mason University. I’ve already had a couple of my peers ask me my age, and when I tell them, they all think that I’m in high school taking the dual enrollment program. When I correct them saying that I have graduated, they all think I’m a Megamind. The truth is, you don’t need to be a genius to graduate early. Hard work, dedication and determination is all you need. It’s not an easy road to go through, but it’s definitely worth the struggle. Completing high school in 2 years is not impossible, though it’s a challenge but if I can do it, so can you.
