  • 16-year-old accepted into Harvard

Graduating junior Aryton Little's fellow students at independent school TM Landry College Prep in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana gathered around as he opened his Harvard acceptance letter this week, and the subsequent celebration was something to behold.

Little erupts with excitement at the news, as his friends scream with joy and begin chanting "three-peat", in reference to the school sending a grad to the Ivy League three years running.

In the video posted to Twitter, Ayrton Little dons Harvard red, the viewer watching him as he peers at his own screen, waiting to see whether he got into his dream school. The brothers wanted to share the joy and excitement with other people. His brother previously got accepted to Stanford, another world-leading university. He plans to study math and computer science at his "dream school" and later hopes to build a nonprofit to help other kids in his community "get to the position that I'm now in". We live about 30 minutes away; and more often than not, we end up clocking in at 7 a.m. and clocking out at 7 p.m.

Ayrton later said, "I'm happy I got into Harvard but I'm even happier because I've made my mother incredibly proud".

"I plan to study applied maths and computer science".
