Elmont Memorial High School, located in Long Island, NY., has a valedictorian to be proud of.
Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna, who was born in NY to Nigerian immigrants, was accepted into all 8 Ivy League schools.
“It would’ve been a great honor to get into just one Ivy League school, so being able to get into all of them was shocking,” she said. “I think it speaks volumes about my support system — my parents, my teachers, my school.”
August hasn’t made her decision as of yet, but she has until May 1.
Schools in the Ivy League are Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale University.
She also gained admission to Johns Hopkins University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
August intends to pursue a science-related major and continue doing research. She is interested in biochemistry and environmental studies.
