Nigerian Student Accepted Into All 8 Ivy League Schools
Harold Ekeh moved to America with his parents when he was 8. The now High school senior has lived the American Dream. Harold worked so hard at his education that he was accepted into all 8 Ivy League universities. Ekeh was born in Nigeria, where he lived comfortably, and never understood why they moved, until now. His main college essay expressed the struggle to adjust, including being clueless in U.S. history classes at school. He has always been passionate about science, hoping to become a doctor or neurosurgeon.
Harold is a remarkable young man, excelling in all areas of life - not just school. He founded a college mentoring program to get more students into top universities. He also directs a youth choir at his church, plays the drums, is part of Key Club and Model UN and was elected to the Homecoming court. As if that's not impressive enough, he speaks Igbo and Spanish and has a 100.5% GPA. Harold is the definition of hard work and perseverance. His parents must be beyond proud!
Now the question is... which school will he choose?
