A Nigerian-born teenager has been offered a place at all eight prestigious Ivy League universities in the US, the BellaNaija website reports .
Jude Okonkwo, a US citizen, whose parents are Nigerian immigrants, wants to pursue a degree in medicine and dreams of eventually becoming a neurosurgeon.
He now has the tough task of choosing between the likes of Harvard, Yale and Brown University, which are among the best universities in the world.
The site quotes him as saying:
It’s a tremendous honour to gain acceptance to all eight Ivy League schools. It’s something I never could have imagined. Tragedies occur in everyday life, and I want to be someone who can help a person and their family heal in their times of need.”
