Willow Smith Dishes on Her Trip to MIT in Teen Vogue
Willow Smith, who once called going to school for a year depressing and the “worst experience,” is thinking about going to school in the Boston area.
Specifically, the actress and singer has been playing with the idea of enrolling into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which she talked about in this month’s issue of Teen Vogue.
Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, chatted with the magazine about her recent visit to the school’s campus in Cambridge following Paris Fashion Week last month. An admitted “STEM freak,” the budding young star wants to bring more female minds into what she calls a “man’s world.”
“It was nice to be able to talk to female students and professors about science and logic because that’s just such a man’s world,” she told Teen Vogue.

The “Whip My Hair” singer seems sincere about her quest to dive into the world of science, as Teen Vogue notes that Smith has been hosting “underground teachings in quantum mechanics” and is learning about the process of producing “songs from mathematical equations.” That all sounds pretty intense and right up MIT’s alley.
But since she’s only 15, it may be a while before Smith ships up to Boston for college.
