Roberta Hannah, A high school senior from Massachusetts has a lot to celebrate these days. According to Western Mass News Roberta Hannah, a student at Springfield High School of Science and Technology has been accepted into all eight ivy league schools for the fall 2020 semester.
This great news comes as Hannah’s school district, like several others, navigates online learning amid the covid19 pandemic. It’s an ample change of pace for many students, but the amazing senior, who says her honors and AP classes prepared her for this time, is continuing with her studies as usual, currently preparing for seven AP exams. She says it’s her hard work and dedication that resulted in the eight coveted acceptances.
Hannah told Western Mass that she knew earlier on that she was accepted into four, but after Ivy Day, which is celebrated on March 26, it was verified that she would have her pick of some of the best colleges in the country.
“Originally, I was only going to apply to three, but then my mom and my sister were like, ‘You should just apply to all eight,’ so I didn’t really have a choice,” Hannah told the media outlet.
“My goal is to be a medicinal chemist,” Hannah shared. “But with making medicine and kind of the one researching it, I want my focus to be on increasing accessibility and making the medicine more affordable.”
The sky is the limit for this your smart queen. We wish her the best on her journey. This is black excellence. This is black girl magic!
