Meet Mari Filer, from Tuscaloosa, who graduated as valedictorian at the top of her class with an impressive 4.56 GPA and acceptance into thirty-nine colleges. She also earned over $2 million in scholarship money.
Apparently, this was too much for certain people who, after seeing her tweet, went online to express their hatred and disbelief.
And then there was hate:
“A man said what…what was she doing out of the kitchen?…that’s a lie, she’s doing this to boost her ego, she’s trying to make herself look better by doing this and that, you can’t even get above a 4.0 GPA, but okay, where are you going to school, Mars university,” Filer recalled.
She addressed her critics by telling WIAT News:
“This type of success is available to anybody. When I post my accomplishments or awards, I always give God the credit because it’s his to give. God is not done with me yet.”
