Jordan Nixon, a 17-year-old high school senior at Douglas County High, has been accepted into 39 colleges and awarded $1.6 million in scholarships.

Thats so remarkable!

via People:

“The crazy thing is, I’m still waiting on decision letters, but I was not expecting that at all,” Nixon told the CBS 46.

Nixon’s acceptances are the highest number any student at Douglas County High has ever received, the outlet reported.

“We’re so happy for her because she does put in a lot of due diligence into applying for these schools,” Nixon’s parents Angelia and Arthur Nixon told CBS 46.

Her parents also described her as independent, well-rounded and an active participant in a plethora of extracurricular activities, CBS 46 reported.

“I am one of the captains of the varsity cheer team at Douglass County, I’m in Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, and I also participate in DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America),” the soon-to-be college student said.

Nixon explained she applied to about 50 schools, but is still surprised every time she reads a congratulations letter.

“It’s shocking, each and every time, you’re taken aback every time you open one,” Nixon told CBS 46.

As for how Nixon was able to rack up that many acceptances, she says “I don’t study all the time, but I definitely do study, I think my secret is to just give it my all.”

Nixon also spoke to Fox 5 Atlanta this link opens in a new tab, explaining that she hopes her story inspires others.

“I wanted to challenge myself,” Nixon told the outlet. “That was the most important thing for me, just to show others anything is possible and that anyone can accomplish it too.”

Nixon has yet to decide on a college, but has until May 1 to do so.

Her daughter shared a tribute to her mom, saying … “From my bestfriend on earth to My beautiful angel in heaven.”

She added … “I love you so much. I’m so heartbroken but the way you looked so @ peace this past week has confirmed that you are resting… no more asthma attacks… damn but baby I am going to miss you.”

Sources close to the family tell us Precious has been on life support since the accident and was never responsive.

Our First Look At Kenya Moore’s Beautiful Daughter Brooklyn Daly

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly’s baby bundle of joy, Brooklyn Doris Daly, made her debut in the latest issue of People magazine.

via People:

“I finally have everything I’ve dreamed of,” she gushes to PEOPLE, posing with her adorable baby girl for the first time in an exclusive spread for this week’s issue.

“She’s so perfect in so many ways,” adds Moore, who says Brooklyn “makes 101 faces” that always make her laugh. “This little angel … so beautiful. I feel so blessed. It’s all been so worth it.”

If Moore sounds extra gushy, that’s because she’s overcome a lot to get to this moment.

The Detroit native, who was raised by her grandmother and lives in Atlanta, had yearned for a family of her own but always seemed to come up short in the love department, with a series of failed relationships behind her. “It’s weird,” she says. “You can be surrounded by people but if you don’t have what you’ve longed for your whole life — and in my case, that’s a family — you just feel lonely.”

Meeting New York restaurateur Marc Daly, 48, in 2016 changed all that. The couple wed in “a romantic” and intimate St. Lucia ceremony in June 2017, and immediately got to work at starting a family. (“We both want to start a family and soon — like, right away,” she told PEOPLE at the time, “We both want a child.”)

They would eventually turn to in vitro fertilization for help, Moore spilling the good news of her baby-to-be back in March while taping the RHOA season 10 reunion.

But pregnancy brought it’s own challenges. At her first ultrasound, doctors couldn’t see the baby’s skeleton and worried Moore had a false pregnancy. Another visit had physicians concerned Moore was having an ectopic tubal pregnancy and would need to be terminated.

“There were so many scares along the way,” Moore says, explaining she was seeing an OBGYN and perinatologist (a specialist for high-risk pregnancy) weekly. “We held our breath every time we went to the doctor.”

Then in late October, Moore tested positive for preeclampsia — a condition marked by extreme fluid retention and high blood pressure that can lead to serious, even fatal complications. Moore first noticed swelling in her feet, but jokes, “Okay pregnant women, their feet swell!”

Days later, she visited her OBGYN and got on the scale. “In one week, I had gained 17 lbs.” she recalls. “I was like, ‘Wait a minute, is this scale right?’ ‘Cause I remembered specifically what my weight was, and at that point, I was at 203 lbs. already. And then when they weighed me, I was 220 lbs. And I was thinking, ‘Something is not right here. Is the scale broken?’ ”Further tests found protein in Moore’s urine and heightened blood pressure, more signs of preeclampsia. Doctors continued to monitor her and give her more tests over the following days, until they finally decided to pull the trigger.

“I called them to give them my blood pressure readings and my reading was through the roof and climbing,” Moore explains. “They told me, ‘Your condition is worsening so get your bags and go straight to the hospital, you’re delivering today.’ “

Frightened, and with Daly still on a plane to Atlanta, Moore recalls bursting into tears. “It was all happening so fast,” she says. “I started crying because I got so scared. I couldn’t get a hold of Marc, I didn’t know what was going to happen. I just remember feeling overwhelmed with emotion. It was really tough.” 

Less than 12 hours later, Moore was on the operating room table, pumped up with anti-seizure medication for herself and steroids to make sure her premature baby’s lungs were developing properly (“They actually made me wait until some of the other cases got out or else it would have been sooner than that,” she says). 

Delivery was even harder. Moore’s emergency cesarean section lasted a nightmarish three hours (Marc, who arrive in Atlanta with plenty of time, was in the delivery room by her side). Due to fibroids in the way, she ended up being cut twice — horizontally and vertically.

“They couldn’t get the baby out,” she says. “There were all these complications and they knew if they cut into a fibroid, I could potentially bleed out and die. So they ended up cutting me vertically too, to just get the baby out and make sure I survived the surgery. They were so scared they were going to lose me.”

At one point, Moore’s epidural ran out and doctors gave her anesthesia to put her out. She jokes, “When it was all over, my doctor said, ‘This was one for the books.’ ”

Brooklyn is adorable!

(Continued) Wyatt says that she will never say either one of their names again, but she adds; “You know who the mistress is because she looks like she played in the movie Gremlins.” On April 7th 2018 Keke’s world took another blow. She was notified that her soon to be ex-husband was involved in an almost fatal car accident. Being the legal wife she uprooted and moved to Memphis, TN to be by his side while he recovered from an accident that almost took his life. “I was his wife, he was the father of my children. God says to love and love unconditionally, so that’s what I did. At that time he couldn’t walk or talk. It was up to me to make all of the decisions for his health care.” Keke sat tirelessly day after day night after night by his side. 2 months later after he came out of his coma and was taken off of all machines he made the decision to “fly off with that bat looking thing,” as Keke put it. “At that point I had washed my hands of the whole thing and I totally let it go.” Expressed Keke. “Even after all of that and all of the antagonizing and bullying on social media by his mistress hash-tagging my songs and attempting to bait me, I never reacted, I am so proud of myself… cause the old Keke would have ruined her whole entire life, but the new mature Keke realizes she is not worth my blessings.” The divorce became final and it was time for Keke to move on to the next chapter of her life. Through prayer and support from those close to her; Keke survived the lowest most difficult point in her life. She was so discouraged that she believed that she never wanted to have another relationship again. However, God placed an angel in her life by the name of Zachariah Darring. He just so happens to be her very first childhood boyfriend who grew up with her in Indianapolis, IN. Life separated them and true love has brought them back together. After reconnecting with him, surprisingly she found out that he had been single and celibate for 6 years praying for his wife; never in a million years did she think that she was the wife that he was praying for. But God is always in control. As of October 17, 2018 with only a small number of family they were married
