Another Nigerian Teenager, Nina Uziogwe Accepted Into 7 Ivy League Schools!


A Nigerian teen, Nina Uziogwe was accepted to seven Ivy League schools, joining a growing club of Nigerians students who have achieved the distinction. 
Uziogwe, a senior at Stuyvesant High School, who plans to study medicine has her pick from among Harvard, Dartmouth, Cornell, UPenn, Columbia, Princeton and Yale.
Uziogwe’s family is originally from Nigeria, and her mother says she always stressed academic performance.
But Uziogwe is the first in her large extended family to be accepted to more than one Ivy League university..
She says she took a number of advanced placement classes and joined extracurricular activities, like cheerleading.
“To be able to weigh two hours of homework for class and do all the extracurriculars sort of became a challenge of balancing my work ethic with time management,” Uziogwe says.
She says financial aid will be the biggest factor in determining which school to attend.
“I have five younger siblings,” she says. “I don’t want the idea of paying for college to be a huge burden.”
