With the distribution of college acceptance letters in full swing, people have been uplifting and celebrating young black students gaining admission to prestigious universities around the world. Such is the same for Ghanaian teens Katia Maame Dufie Osei, Afia Sarpong Frimpong and Isabelle Quaye who got into Harvard, Yale and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) respectively, according to Ghana's Citi Newsroom.
Citi Newsroom reports the three teenagers all performed outstandingly on the SAT exam and have been admitted to more than one top university. Frimpong and Osei attend Wesley Girls’ High School in Cape Coast, Ghana, and Quaye attends Ghana International School in the nation's capital.
Since news spread of their acceptances, people have taken to Twitter to share in the celebration. One Twitter user, @Yeho_, wrote about Osei receiving acceptance letters from Harvard, University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University:
