Minnesota Teen Accepted To All 8 Ivy League Schools
Just earlier this week reported that an inspiring Nigerian teen by the name of Harold Ekeh had been accepted into all 8 Ivy League school. Now, another amazing teen has already accomplished the same rare feat!
A Minnesota high school student has achieved the rare honor of being accepted by all 8 Ivy League schools, plus more highly accredited colleges.
Via My Fox Twin Cities:
“I was very surprised,” Munira Khalif, senior at Mounds Park Academy, said. “The best part for me was being able to call family members on the phone and to hear their excitement. This was truly a blessing from God.”
The 8 Ivy League schools are Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University. In addition, Khalif was accepted to Stanford, Georgetown, and the University of Minnesota.
“I am humbled to even have the opportunity to choose amongst these schools because they are all incredible places to learn and grow,” Khalif said.
Khalif said she has yet to decide which school to attend, and plans to make a few more campus visits before making her final decision by May 1. Perhaps she will bump into Harold Ekeh of New York, who was also accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools earlier this week.
In addition to her exceptional academic record and vigorous class workload, Khalif is a state speech champion and founder and leader of MPA’s Social Consciousness Club.
“Munira has thrived in MPA’s rigorous educational environment, where we challenge students to be intellectually curious and confident communicators,” Randy Comfort, MPA’s upper school director, said. “She already is making a difference in communities across the globe, and I know she is ready to embrace the challenges that arise in our constantly changing world.”
Congratulations and best wishes to Munira!!!! We look forward on her changing the world as well as more stories of brilliant young Black brothas and sistas taking the academic world by storm.
