New Jersey high school senior Ifeoma White-Thorpe said she couldn’t believe it when she heard back from all eight Ivy League schools — and they all accepted her for the fall.
Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth and Princeton all want her on their campus this upcoming fall!
Ifeoma is a hopeful future global health professional. To pair with her big dreams, she already has some big accomplishments in her life. She won the national Selma speech and essay competition in 2015, has amazing Advanced Placement class grades and serves as her school’s student government president.
Now that she has all of her acceptance letters, a very important decision needs to be made: Which school will she actually attend?
SHE SAID QUOTE: “I got into Harvard early action, so I figured I’ll just go there, so then I got into all the others and I was like, wait, now I don’t know where I want to go!”
Regardless of her choice, Ifeoma White-Thorpe clearly has a bright future ahead of her.

J.J. Watt Surprises His Fourth Grade Teacher
If you had any doubt about the lasting effects a teacher can have on a student, just think about Judy Keefe and the impact she's had on one former student.
Keefe, an elementary school teacher in Wisconsin, is retiring after 43 years and received a special visit from one particular student who dropped by to thank her for playing a big role in the man he is today.
Houston Texans all-pro defensive end J.J. Watt surprised his old teacher with a retirement cake. He said, "She happens to be the teacher who told me I could play in the NFL. She is one of the biggest inspirations for me – she’s unbelievable."
Keefe has kept in touch with Watt through the years and has also worked for his J.J. Watt Foundation. She says, "He was always a positive role model. He was a great student."
