Harold Ekeh, an impressive 18-year-old high school senior, has the toughest decision ever to make: He’s been accepted to every college he’s applied to, including all eight ivy leagues. What’s more incredible is that we remember a very similar story from last year from another amazing Black teen, Kwasi Enin, who faced the same incredible fate and chose Yale. Talk about making your momma proud!

“It was crazy. My mom sat next to me and it was just letter after letter after letter. I couldn’t believe it,” Harold told DailyMail as he recounted the five minutes when acceptance emails came in from Yale, Harvard, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, NYU, MIT, Vanderbilt and SUNY Stony Brook. Following the overflow of great news, he did something any teenager would to — he went to Chipotle with his friends for a half-steak, half-chicken burrito bowl for his “perfect” celebration.
His proud parents have been sharing the good news on their Facebook pages, exclaiming, “Bless the LORD! Congrats Son, in Jesus’ name!”
Paul Ekeh, the young man’s father, says, “It was like a thunderbolt. I didn’t doubt that he could achieve good things but it was the sweep that made it so different. I don’t know how to say how I feel. It’s amazing.!”
