Kevin Mager was born without the part of his brain that connects the two hemispheres, and doctors suggested that he would never walk or speak.
But today, at 18 years old, 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 that people may not realize that they have any disabilities, but that they have short-term memory loss, have trouble remembering names, and are “hyperactive” all day.
After almost completing high school, he began applying to colleges.
This video shows the moment Kevin found out that he was accepted to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
All their hard work has paid off, and the folks at ‘Big Orange’ tweeted, “We can’t wait for you to get here!”
Get ready for Rocky Top, Kevin! We can’t wait for you to get here! 🍊 #NewVols
