    - She has since become a viral sensation on the internet

    It is no news that Nigerians in diaspora continue to be pace setters achieving what would have seem impossible. From amazing inventions to showcasing excellence in the educational sector.

    Oludamilola Oluwadara Adekeye is yet another Nigerian girl making the country proud. The 17-year-old is currently swimming in choices of where to further her tertiary education as she has been accepted into not one, but 19 top universities in the world.

    Talking to CNN, Oluwadamilola who is a student of Brighton College in Abu Dhabi, says her passions include music and she is still a bit undecided about what she’ll study in university. She said, “I’m very involved in music at my high school. I’m in three musical groups and I started a fourth.”

    Among the universities she was accepted include Yale, Stanford, Columbia and the London School of Economics.

    However, Oludamilola is not the only one experiencing this as yet another black teen has also been accepted into more than one university. Michael who is also 17-year-old, got accepted into all 20 schools he applied to including Harvard.
