MEET HALEY TAYLOR SCHLITZ: THE 16-YEAR-OLD LAW STUDENT AND ADVOCATE FOR ACCESSIBLE EDUCATION
Do Something - July 16, 2019
In a lot of ways, Haley Taylor Schlitz is your average 16-year-old. She likes playing Fortnite, hanging out with her friends, and re-watching Black Panther. But unlike most teenagers, Haley is already a college graduate, on her way to law school this upcoming fall.
“[People] are pleasantly surprised the majority of the time, and then they'll ask a whole bunch of questions,” Taylor Schlitz, a DoSomething member, told us. “I love answering them, and I really don't mind. We always have a conversation about how and why.”
As for how she did it, the answer is straightforward enough: Haley is incredibly gifted. She graduated high school at 13, finished college in the years following, and recently got accepted to nine different law programs. Her fast-tracked education has recently drawn a lot of attention from places like Good Morning America, but her path hasn’t always been so supported.
