Welcome To Harvard
[music] Who can really expect to get into Harvard? No amount of preparation can make you think
you would ever have a chance to get into Harvard. When I found that I got in, I couldn’t believe it. My lamp fell over, my books fell over, I ran outside, I was like, “Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!” I was in the doctor’s office with my mom. I was in rehearsal for the musical I was in senior year. I was screaming in this car by myself
in this empty parking lot. The first thing I did was call my brother
who works in New York, which is like two hours away from where I live. I was just standing there with my mouth open like
“What just happened to me?” I burst out into tears when
I saw that word of ‘Congratulations,’ and I literally could not stop crying for 15 minutes. I get up and I start running. Everyone was kind of alarmed because, I’m not a runner. I don’t run! My mom started screaming, my sister started screaming, I started screaming. Since we screamed so loud and
my mom was downstairs, She thought something was wrong. I’m running down the hallway, everyone is like “Samyra, Samyra!
What’s wrong? What’s wrong?” I’m just like “I think I got into Harvard!” I hugged my mom and we had a crazy moment. She started crying and
I just remember feeling so happy. I start crying, I start yelling and everything. “AH!” They start erupting. People start crying.
I’m not even crying. I call my mom, I call my dad, I called my friend. Everyone’s crying. It was one of the most exciting moments of my life. It’s a day I’ll remember for a long time.
