When Jayson Vu began his SAT Prep class the tutors asked him what he “goal” SAT Math score was. He responded with “an 800.” This is a perfect score.
The tutors laughed at him and told him to choose a more realistic goal. He got his SAT results back and got the last laugh. He earned a PERFECT score on the Math Portion of the SATs. INCREDIBLE.
Mr. Vu is a reminder to us all not to let other people’s lack of imagination determine our realities.
We are the South Bronx. We are Hostos.
