The senior at Medgar Evers College Preparatory School, a resident of Crown Heights, will graduate at the end of the school year having completed 11 Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
In her freshman year, she was already taking two AP classes. By her sophomore year, she was taking five.
Miller attributed her academic success to her school.
“I love this school, it’s given me an education where I’m competitive with students around the country,” she said. “As a young black girl, that’s something that’s rare for students in my position.”
She was so ahead in her coursework that in her junior year, Miller began taking college courses at Medgar Evers College. She’s set to graduate with an associate’s degree this May.
Miller isn’t just a top-notch student, she’s also the president of the student government. In that role, she listens to the needs of the students, works collaboratively with grade representatives, and meets with faculty and staff.
They plan events like “Pink Day,” when the entire school dresses in pink to raise awareness for breast cancer and donate proceeds to charity.
“I grew up in this community,” Miller said. “I grew up running around Medgar Evers College, so to come here, this is my family. This is my home.”
As for the future, Miller already has her sights on law school so she can fulfill her dream of being a human rights lawyer for the United Nations.
She has already started her college applications, and will apply to a total of 21 schools. On the list are hallowed institutions like Yale, Cornell, NYU and Georgetown.
“I want to do international diplomacy or international relations,” Miller said. “That is definitely the plan.”
