Kevin Mager was born without the part of his brain that connects the two hemispheres—and doctors suggested he would never walk or talk.
But today, at 18, he sings, reads, runs, plays sports, and loves life.
He has also become an advocate and source of inspiration for those with the same condition, called agenesis of the corpus callosum.
He says people might not notice he has any disabilities at all, but he has short-term memory loss, has a hard time remembering names, and is “hyperactive” all day long.
After nearly completing high school, he began applying to colleges.
This video shows the moment Kevin learned he was accepted into the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
All his hard work has paid off, and the folks at ‘Big Orange’ tweeted, “We can’t wait for you to get here!”
