A New York based Nigerian teen has been accepted in all the Ivy League schools

A Long Island, N.Y., teen has a unique problem: Which Ivy League school should she attend next year?
That’s because Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna — who is Elmont Memorial Junior – Senior High School valedictorian and Intel Science Finalist — has been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools, reported News 12 Long Island. As a refresher, these schools are: Yale University, Brown University, Princeton University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, Harvard University and Dartmouth College.
“My whole family is so excited,” said Uwamanzu-Nna in the interview with the TV station. “Attending any of these schools would be such a great honor.”
Oh, and in addition to those schools, she’s gotten in to four others, her school’s website notes: Johns Hopkins University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Uwamanzu-Nna is the daughter of Nigerian immigrants, reports local WRIC.com. She tells the local TV station, “Though I was born here in America, I visited Nigeria many times. And I’ve seen that my cousins don’t have the same opportunities that I have. So definitely, whatever I do, I want to make sure that it has an impact on Nigeria.”
