Stephen R. Strafford II

Stephen could do his multiplication tables by the time he entered kindergarten. By the age of 11, he was a freshman at Morehouse College, taking college courses toward his pre-med, computer science and mathematics degrees. Now 16, Stephen plans to go the Morehouse School of Medicine, focus on obstetrics, specialize in infertility and become a doctor when he’s 22.
