#BlackBoyJoy came to fruition as a Louisiana teen learned he was accepted to Harvard College.

In a video posted to Twitter on Tuesday, 16-year-old Ayrton Little is surrounded by friends and family as he awaits a response from the Ivy League school.



The TM Landry College Prep junior, who will graduate as a member of the Harvard Class of 2022, was the third student in his school to be accepted into an Ivy League. Peers in the video reference this by chanting “three-peat.” The video has been viewed over 5 million times.

Ivy material seems to run in the Little family. Aryton’s older brother Alex was just accepted to Stanford University earlier this month.

“Seeing Ayrton also doing it,” Alex told WUBR. “Those goals we set for each other kind of caused us to become real competitive and push each other to do the best we can.”

We can’t wait to see what comes of these brothers!
