Colin Kaepernick has proven one thing lately: he doesn’t always stand up for what he believes in. Recently at the center of American controversy, this 49ers player has chosen to sit out The Star-Spangled Banner. He aims to use this anti-patriotic display to draw attention to racial inequality and police brutality across all fifty states. Before his actions drew the attention of red-blooded Americans everywhere, and spread to other players in the NFL, Kaepernick led his team to Super Bowl XLVII in 2012. Long before recruiters came knocking at his door, Colin dreamed of football. We will be examining his high school and college education on this edition of EduReview.
Born in Milwaukee on November 3rd of 1987, He spent a few weeks with his birth mother before being put up for adoption. He was immediately taken in by Rick and Teresa Kaepernic. He went from being the biracial child of a single mother to the newest member of an upper-class family. Following the rest of his family, a four-year old Colin moved to California at the age of four. By the time he was eight, Colin impressed his local football and baseball league with his throwing power. Colin can seemingly predict the future. In fourth grade, he penned a letter that described his future as starting quarterback for the 49ers. When he entered John H. Pitman High School, he proved himself a versatile star both on and off the green; he was a first team all-district, all-conference, and all-academic selection. His first recruitment round went less than swimmingly. After graduating from high school, Colin enrolled at the University of Nevada on a football scholarship. After the team’s longtime starter suffered a concussion, Kaepernick took over as the school’s number one quarter back. Colin valued his college education more than sports; this is easily proven by one choice. He turned down an offer from the Chicago Cubs to finish his degree in business management. When the 49ers came calling after his graduation, Colin did not make the same choice twice.
The ex-wife of scandalized Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin is a lot of things: a mother, a practicing Muslim, and the vice chairwoman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She has been characterized as indispensable to the former first lady and holds the title of “Traveling Chief of Staff.” This seems to be more than just media assumptions. In a 2007 Vogue article, Clinton was quoted as saying, ““Huma Abedin has the energy of a woman in her 20s, the confidence of a woman in her 30s, the experience of a woman in her 40s and the grace of a woman in her 50s… I am lucky to have had her on my team for a decade now.” Judging by Abedin’s recent promotion, those positive thoughts remain in place nine years later. Huma Abedin comes from a family of academics; both parents hold doctorates from the University of Pennsylvania. With this background in mind, it should not be surprising that Abedin earned her own college degree.
One of three children born to Sayed Abedin and Saleha Abedin, Huma moved from Kalamazoo to Saudi Arabia at just two years old. This time in the Middle East gave her a unique perspective issues plaguing Muslim minorities. After graduating primary education, Huma returned to the United States to attend George Washington University. A private research university in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of DC, GWU was established at the behest of our first president. During her time there, Huma worked as both a White House intern and a member of various Islamic-centric organization. After her college graduation, Huma quickly moved into a career in the political realm.
Paul Ryan, the youngest speaker of the House since 1869, featured as vice president on Mitt Romney’s presidential bid in 2012. A staunch republican since his college days, Ryan helped pass various bipartisan budget cuts and advocates a policy of American Responsibility. Born and raised in a Catholic family, his religion still plays a heavy part in his political decision-making. In terms of other influences, Paul Ryan credits Ayn Rand’s objectivism for getting him interested in politics; while her views got him interested in politics, he later rejected them in favor of the milder views of Thomas Aquinas. Keeping his reading choices in mind, his educational choices might be obvious. We will be exploring his education in this entry of EduInReview.
Paul Ryan spent his earliest school days at St. Mary’s Catholic School in Janesville. For his freshman year, he moved on to Joseph A. Craig High School. Quite active in school and community, he spent much of his free time playing track and soccer. In addition, he was elected both prom king and class president. After his graduation, Ryan chose to pursue a degree in economics and political science at Miami University. College did not see an end to his dedication to extracurricular activities. In his four years of undergraduate, he joined the College Republicans, became a member of Delta Tau Delta, interned at the local government office, and volunteered on John Boehner’s campaign. After Ryan’s graduation in 1992, he accepted a position for legislative aide to local Senator Bob Kasten. In 1999, he became the US Representative for Wisconsin’s first congressional district. His star just kept rising. Now, as stated earlier, he holds the title of 54th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
Now running solo, Zayn Malik once belonged to one of the most popular boy bands in history: One Direction. This group of five formed after being teamed up on the UK’s version of the X-Factor; due to unnamed reasons, Zayn chose to escape the spotlight and leave the band in 2015. His first solo album, titled Mind of Mine, released worldwide on March of 2016. His time in One Direction apparently left him with a lot of fans. Mind of Mine debuted on the top of the charts in the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, and the United States. While he always had a love of singing and performing, Malik was not always a teenage heartthrob; he started out as a simple student at Lower Fields Primary school.
Zayn was born in Bradford on January 12th of 1993 to Yaser and Patricia Malik. While seemingly not overly religious himself, the entirety of the Malik family, including his three sisters, belong to the Muslim faith. Aside from being the motivation for many racially-motivated attacks, this fact does not feature too heavily into his story. After his graduation from Lower Fields Primary, he moved on to complete his education Tong High School. Featuring state-of-the-art education and a modern style of teaching, it was at here that Malik discovered a deeper interest in music. During his time there, he appeared in a variety of school theatre productions and took a variety of performance classes. Malik also began to author and write his own raps.
While he ultimately did not go on to college, he once planned to graduate and pursue an English degree at a nearby university. Judging by his website, a touring circuit seems to be in his future.
The Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate for the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections, Gary Johnson once served as Governor of New Mexico. Using his gubernatorial veto 200 times in his first six months, he managed to cut his state’s budget by ten percent and showcase his dedication to his own beliefs. Before his time as governor, Johnson was the owner of a multi-million-dollar construction company. All in all, he’s a rather busy man.
When not running for President or governor, he somehow finds time to write; he authored and published his first book, Seven Features of Good Government, in 2012. When not at work, it might be impossible to find this active senior at his desk. This accomplished athlete, and former track star, climbed all 29,000 feet of Mount Everest in 2003. With all these things taking up his free time, it seems unlikely he will move beyond his current baccalaureate education.
One of three children born to Lorraine and Earl Johnson, Gary came into the world on January 1st of 1953. From his birthplace of North Dakota, the family moved to New Mexico; this state played a much bigger role in Johnson’s life. After graduating from Sandia High School in 1971, Gary enrolled at the University of New Mexico to pursue his bachelor’s degree. Majoring in political science, he became active with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon. While with his fraternity, he met his ex-wife Dee Sims and laid the foundations for his construction business.
In 1975, Johnson graduated with a bachelors’ degree in political science. All the while, his construction business kept growing. Finding the overnight success of his business burdensome, Johnson enrolled in a time management course at a night school. He credits this single course with developing his goal-setting and management abilities later in life. In conclusion, Johnson’s education aligned well with his ultimate goals and lends itself to his current candidacy. After all, what degree better prepares you for the campaign trail than political science?
Famous for his prowess on the soccer field, Cristiano Ronaldo has played for both Manchester United and Real Madrid. He currently serves as the captain for Portugal’s national team. Over the course of his career, Ronaldo shattered multiple records. Born on February 5th of 1985, he grew up on the working-class island of Madeira with his three elder siblings. While his father died in 2005 of kidney disease, he had a huge impact on Cristiano’s future; this equipment manager introduced his son to soccer. By the age of ten, Cristiano was something of a local soccer celebrity. Less than six years later, at the age of sixteen, he was recruited by Manchester United for contract totaling 12 million pounds. The footballer went on to win FIFA World Player of the year, the ballon d’or, and the coveted golden boot. His educational record is far less impressive. He never graduated high school.
Football came first. Some jokingly say that Cristiano majored in soccer with a minor in football. In an interview, his godfather recalled multiple times where the boy would sneak from his room to avoid school work and family dinners. Oddly enough, this became something his mother supported. In a 2011 interview with CelebsNow, Cristiano stated the following in regards to schooling: “‘I was not thick but I was not interested in school. I was expelled after I threw a chair at the teacher.” While he preferred to focus solely on his sport, he does not encourage others to do the same. Nothing demonstrates this more clearly than the tale of young Martunis. Left homeless and alone by a 2004 tsunami, the Indonesian boy was found stranded on an abandoned beach in nothing but his SCP football jersey. He credited his passion for football for his survival. Personally invested in the case, Ronaldo flew to the boy’s home and promised to pay for his education. In 2015, ten years after the storm that changed his life, that same boy joined Portugal’s football league under the tutelage of his former idol.
