Helms, who immigrated from Uganda five years ago, credits his success to his supportive guidance counselor and parents. With a GPA of 3.94, he plans to attend UC Berkeley, majoring in music and minoring in global studies.

“I feel very lucky that I was well-prepared. I had a wonderful guidance counselor and parents who were supportive of this whole process,” he said in an interview with US media this week.

The extent of Helms’s achievement was highlighted when his father, Chris Atekega, opened a suitcase filled with acceptance letters and scholarship offers, showcasing Helms’s hard work and his family’s unwavering support.

Helms Atekega’s passion for music has been a significant factor in his academic success. He has been singing for as long as he can remember and credits music with giving him the confidence to excel in all areas of his life.

This summer, before starting classes in mid-August, Helms, who sings with the Pacific Boy Choir Academy, will travel to Peru.

His advice to others: “Keep your head up and go for it.”
