“I wasn’t the best student until the eighth grade,” Fang said. “I struggled in school for a long time and didn’t get into the exam schools. That’s when I started paying attention.” Today, Fang is class valedictorian and the first student in the school’s history to be accepted by Harvard University. Fang received a full scholarship, covering his tuition, rooming costs and living expenses for the next four years.
