Teen's Dramatic Video, Revealing His Acceptance By Harvard, Charms Internet

The video shows the Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, resident wearing a Harvard sweater and surrounded by classmates at TM Landry College Preparatory while he checks his admission status online.

Ayrton Little, a 16-year-old boy from Louisiana, found out that he has been accepted to Harvard University and he could not contain his happiness. It's the third year in a row that a student has been accepted to an Ivy League school, which explains why the crowd was chanting "three-peat" in the video.

Alexander explained just how hard he and his brother have worked to earn their respective acceptance letters in a post to the Love What Matters Facebook page: "More often than not, we end up clocking in at 7 a.m. and clocking out at 7 p.m".

Celebrations like this run in the Little family. "There's only 16 in our graduating class, and me and my brother are two of those 16". Last week, his brother was accepted to Stanford University.

It means that the Christmas and New Year period could see heavy snow across parts of country with a notable drop in temperature. Scattered snow showers are possible today and this afternoon but little to no accumulation is expected.

"Harvard has always been my dream school", Little told HuffPost.

"I think part of it is that he's 16", he said. It wasn't just Ayrton's accomplishment or my accomplishment.

Writing on Twitter, Little shared his joy at the news.

"I just shed a tear watching this awesome moment in this young man's life & all of his friends enjoying it along with him", Tichina Arnold wrote. According to WAFB, Ayrton plans to major in Applied Math and Computer Science while Alexander is setting his sights on Physics.
