Wholesome Freakout: Doctors Thought He Would Never Walk Or Talk, But Now He’s Accepted Into College

Kevin Mager was born without the part of his brain that connects the two hemispheres, the condition is called agenesis of corpus callosum.

His doctors said that it was highly likely that Mager would never talk or walk. Now Mager, 18, is an advocate for the rare disease and he loves to sing, run, play sports in his spare time. 

He shares that people might even notice that he has any disabilities at all, but suffers from short-term memory loss, has a difficult time remembering names, and is “hyperactive” all day, every day. 

Mager completed a huge milestone recently, applying and being accepted to college—he will attend the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

His reaction to his acceptance was captured and was shared to Twitter.

Alum and other Internet users congratulated the teenager on his acceptance.


Let us join the choir too in saying, “Congratulations!”
