Ayrton Little is a 16-year-old teenager from Louisiana, and he shared a video on Twitter of the moment he found out he had been offered a place at his dream college – the prestigious Harvard University.
Unsurprisingly, the footage has gone viral with people all over the world cheering him on in solidarity. The student and his classmates erupted in pure joy after finding out that he had been accepted into the renowned school.
“I don’t know how to describe it, it was the best feeling,” Little said. “It feels amazing. I plan to study applied maths and computer science. If I keep my grades up, I will attend in the fall.”
Little was with a number of his classmates at TM Landry College Preparatory – a private school in Opelousas, Louisiana – when he learned that he had won early admittance into the Ivy League school for Harvard’s 2022 class. His classmates can be heard shouting “three-peat”, in reference to the fact this Little’s acceptance marks the third consecutive time that a student from TM Landry College Preparatory has been accepted into Harvard. Little is clearly very emotional and overwhelmed by the news – after all, it isn’t every day that a 16-year-old gets accepted into a school which is widely considered one of the best colleges on the planet.
“I’m happy I got into Harvard, but I’m even happier because I’ve made my mother incredibly proud,” he admitted.
