Photo: 15 Years Old Nigerian Girl Secures Admission Into Harvard.

A Nigerian girl, Saheela Ibraheem, has achieved what so many adults would call a daunting task in getting admission into an Ivy league school. She was given admission by 13 other institutions, including Princeton and Columbia before settling for Harvard.

As gathered, Young Saheela skipped two grades because she believes the key to success is figuring out what you love to learn as early as possible, something she did at age 5.

“If you are passionate about what you do, and I am passionate about most of these things, especially with Math,” Saheela said. It is with this mindset that she actualised the goal of getting into the prestigious university at the age of 15.

Presently her dream of becoming a Neuroscientist is underway.

  1. Thank GOD/ALLAH she is not in Northern Nigeria where ATIKU/IBB/BUHARI BOKO HARAM will not allow her dream of Amalgri education not to talk of any University in the northern states or dream of UI where she could easily get a Merit admission. Please Presido GEJ should give this Nigerian brain 15yrs Federal scholarship irrespective of the wealth of her family. We challenge IBB to present what he has done with our sister’s/Delta state children since their mother passed away. This cocaine dazed IBB should be smoked out of Minna for Nigerians to question him.

  5. @Bennado you are an illiterate ooo. Do you know where they call Harvard University at all? Or you think is one of those University’s in Uselu, Warri, Madala, Ogbomosho that you can simply buy your way into. For someone to gain admission into Harvard University, it must be on the grounds of MERIT idiot mumu. & for you @Freeman you are type of problems we have in Nigerian. whenever a news article come out, the first thing is to look for a fault in the person or somebody. By Gods grace people like you will grow old looking for fault in other people without success in your own life. Wetin concern the girl with government? abi they tell you say na GEJ sponsor are go school. MUMU
