We're grabbing the Ivy League back to back.

Nigerians smash acceptance records so regularly, maybe it's time we just get a permanent Ivy League quota. In 2015, it was Harold Ekeh.

In 2015, it was Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe, a New Jersey’s Morris Hills High School senior, just made us proud again. She got accepted into Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Brown, Dartmouth. She also got accepted into Stanford, which isn't an Ivy League school, but still a great school nonetheless.

She talked about the moment she clicked on the final acceptance letter to open it:

“I was like, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, like this might be eight out of eight and I clicked it and it said ‘Congratulations’ and I was like oh my goodness!”

The question now is, which one will she choose?

Ifeoma's plan was that she'd go to Havard. But when you get accepted into 8 Ivy league schools, it's a completely different ball game.

One thing's for sure, wherever she ends up, she plans to study biology and pursue a career in public health.

Can we also acknowledge the fact that Ifeoma was the President of her high school’s student government? Did I add that she's a sprinter? Damn.

In 2015, she was one of two winners in the National Liberty Museum’s Selma Speech and Essay Contest, for her video on equal educational access, freedom and racial justice.

Wherever you are, take a moment, and say this;

"You're amazing, Ifeoma."
