[She Did That!] Teen Has Her Pick of HOW Many Ivy League Schools?!

Published April 6, 2016

Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna has lots of choices about her future. After all, the 17-year-old has been accepted to all eight Ivy League schools!

If that weren’t awesome enough, she also got into MIT and New York University.

The bright high school senior has experienced great success in her education thus far, including being named an Intel science finalist and a recent invitation to the White House Science Fair.

Augusta credits her parents, who are immigrants from Nigeria, for pushing her to excel in her studies to a degree unmatched by most of her peers.

“Attending one of those schools, any of them, would be such a great honor,” she said.

Augusta has yet to make a final decision on which lucky higher learning institute will welcome her as a freshman in the fall. 

Looks like Augusta got in formation and slayed!
