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. You’ll have to watch the video above to understand what we mean.
Little is a student at TM Landry College Prep in Breaux Bridge, and according to KATC in Lafayette, Little’s brother was accepted to Stanford University earlier this month.
Little retweeted his brother’s video of the family exploding in happiness, chanting “Two for two!”
