Black High School Senior Gets Accepted into All 8 Ivy League Schools


Congratulations to Roberta Hannah, an 18-year old senior at Springfield High School of Science and Technology in Massachusetts, who got accepted into all 8 ivy league schools. Hannah, who is a track and field athlete, said she studied hard while taking honors and AP courses to get ready for college, she’s currently getting ready for 7 AP exams. Originally Roberta only wanted to apply to three of the ivy league schools but was encouraged by her mother and sister to apply to all eight, however, Roberta thought she would only get accepted to four, but instead all eight invited her to campus. Hannah has selected Columbia University and will be majoring in biochemistry and African-American studies. Roberta’s goal is to be a medicinal chemist, she hopes to research and make medicines and make them affordable.
