The notable accomplishments of seventeen-year-old Malvika Raj Joshi didn't end when she got a scholarship to MIT after having left school to be homeschooled, or "unschooled" as it's referred to in India. After years of hard work while homeschooling, she was noticed by MIT for having won three different metals (two silver and a bronze) in a Programming Oympiad contest against traditionally-schooled competitors.

However, if you read the coverage of her scholarship win as written by Indian newspaper "The Indian Express," her greater accomplishment is over the sexism and traditional social mores that plague that area.



So we wish Ms. Joshi good luck on her computer science studies at MIT, and GREATER luck fighting that uphill battle against the establishment.



Get yours, girl.

Donald Trump's political rally in Chicago got shut down because of people protesting him. His son, Donald Trump Jr. responded with a claim that the protestors didn't know why they were even protesting.  John Legend had a pretty simple answer for him. 

Another Twitter user, notably with the name "RedKneckHillBilly", claimed John Legend said that because he just had no education and in this case, he might be right...

Because both Trumps went to the University of Pennsylvania, just like John Legend, and look where that got them.
