Dr. Cortlan J. Wickliff, Esq. was accepted to college at the age of 14. He was the youngest engineer in the nation in 2010 when he graduated from Rice University at the age of 19, one of the youngest African American Harvard Law School graduates in the school's history in 2013 at the age of 22, and the youngest barred attorneys in the state of Texas in 2013 (more than 94,000 barred attorneys in the state). At the age of 25, he received his Ph.D. in Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2016.


For Dr. Cortlan J. Wickliff, the road to achieving these accomplishments began in the third grade with a book report and a dream. This book is a collection of the concrete exercises, lessons, and life experiences that allowed him to achieve so many extraordinary milestones at such a young age.

Over the course of his journey, Dr. Wickliff had been asked many times, “What is the secret to your success?” This book Young and Driven is his answer to that question. It is his sincere belief that if you apply the information in this book to your personal journey, you too will be able to make your dreams come true!
