Aoki Lee Simmons Is Harvard Bound

If you’ve been following Kimora Lee Simmons and her beautiful family on social media, you likely know already that daughter Aoki Lee is equipped with a sharp sense of wit, which she mostly employs in her sister Ming’s (and occasionally her dad, Russell Simmons’) comments – but this week Aoki showed she’s a true brainiac by getting admitted to Harvard at only 16-years-old!

Aoki’s younger brother Kenzo got in on the celebration, reading her admission news for the gram as mom Kimora celebrated in the background, while also wisecracking about Aoki getting in on her own merit amid the current college admission scandal that has Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman in hot water.

So blessed @aokileesimmons made it into HARVARD and Kimora Myself or Tim didn’t have to pull any strings or pay anyone to get her in 😂 she made it on her own academic merit “Aoki lee you are source of pride and inspiration to me, your whole family and the whole world at large As you know ..and should always remember ….We love u unconditionally Whether u have “success or failure” in the world … you will ALWAYS be very successful in the most important category.. because you are a compassionate loving spirit who will always have God your family and your extended families love… ❤️ …Remember this as as you continue on your path .. God favors YOU ..and in this lifetime he will use you to do great work for the greater good of this world I’m so thankful to have u as my daughter I love you soooo much

You’d think Aoki’s dad Russell Simmons would have some chill but apparently nah. We get it though, he’s proud of his daughter.

Today was a big day …my baby @aokileesimmons got accepted into Harvard The fact is she worked hard and deserves the offer to attend any school in this country Still nothing is in our hands ….So im so blessed this evening .. infact I’m overjoyed at the fact that she is truly happy,; my happiness is embedded in her happiness if she were to quit school tomorrow to be an artists or to pursue the life of an animal activists… or anything else …and it made her this happy i would like to think that i be equally as happy This is her dream to be an academic it’s in her dna I realize my happiness is inextricably tied to the happiness of my children And so far i have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams 🙏🏾 I guess by my old standards i have had a tough year i … but God is in all things and all things are GOD. I recommend that we all learn to be at ease with whatever comes up Operate with grace and from abundance and soon all that we call struggle will be ease

Russell did address his “tough year” in the caption of this post, but revealed his daughter’s achievements outweigh his own personal adversity.

Way to go Aoki! This is great news.
