Wrap your brain around this one

A black hassidic jew growing up in Omaha. Who's into competitive ice skating.
"...his advisers would have a hard time choosing which of his compelling story lines would most dazzle those college admissions officers: The story of growing up in the only Hasidic family in Omaha? Or the story of being the only student of color in his yeshiva? Or maybe the story of being the only Hasidic person of color in Omaha’s competitive ice skating circuit?"
Loved this article.

But make sure you read the clincher at the end. Now that's shocking.
