  • VIDEO 16-year-old's reaction to getting into Harvard goes viral

Among the slew of well-wishers from across the Twittersphere was Harvard alumnus and Brooklyn Nets basketball player Jeremy Lin.

To say that Ayrton Little, from Breaux Bridge, celebrated with his classmates when he got the news of the Ivy League acceptance would be an understatement. Just like him, the whole room burst with happiness, chanting "three-peat".

'Harvard has always been my dream school, ' Little told the.

Little said his first thought after reading the letter was that his "life had been changed forever". Many of my classmates are also getting their decisions this week. His brother previously got accepted to Stanford, another world-leading university.

'It still haven't been calm since my brother's acceptance Friday, but my brother and I realized that we have done the impossible, ' he said.

I don't know how to describe it, it was the best feeling.

Little said that he plans to major and math and computer science before working on Wall Street with the aim of opening a nonprofit to help children from a similar background to him get into Ivy League schools. His goal is to work on Wall Street and open a non-profit to help children from his community get to the position that he is now in.
