Ekeh Harold Gets Ivy League Universities

This is 17  years old Harold Ekeh who was born in Nigeria. He moved to the United States when he was only 8 with his parents who wanted a better life for the family. Ekeh, the oldest of five children has been accepted into not 1, but 8 Ivy League universities with almost full scholarship to rule. 

He actually got into all 13 schools he applied to, including MIT and Johns Hopkins. Well he is facing the hardest part, that is deciding where to go. I am leaning toward Yale,” he told CNNMoney. “I competed at Yale for Model UN, and I like the passion people at Yale had.” he said.

He doesn’t see him self as a whizkid, or the very intelligent type. He believes, setting your heart unto something and actually working hard for it does pay off, and that is the only thing he did.

Ekeh, only 17, founded a college mentoring program at his school, Elmont Memorial High School on Long Island in the New York city suburbs. His goal is to get more students into top universities.

I am very humbled by this,” Ekeh said. “It’s not just for me, but for my school and community. We can accomplish great things here.”

Ekeh will spend the coming weeks visiting all the schools before making his final decision.

His advice to other high school students is simple: “Like my parents always told us, the secret to success is unbridled resolve.”

Congratulations and goodluck Ekeh!
