Minnesota high school senior accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools
A Somali Minnesota high school student has achieved the rare honor of being accepted by all 8 Ivy League schools, plus more highly accredited colleges.
“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.
You know, if they get on with a RoL tv series anytime soon it’s possible that a show about a brilliant young black man who solves problems with science, his Nazi-tank-destroying boss, his second-generation immigrant local goddess girlfriend, his former political refugee Somali hijabi co-worker, and their other queer and non-white colleagues fighting a rich white prick who espouses white supremacy might be seen as slightly too on-the-nose for the current state of world affairs, but I think that’s exactly what we need right now.
