We’re living in very weird times lately here in 2020. Even with everything horrible that’s happening in the news lately sometimes a story like this comes along and just brings a smile to your face.
Rehan Staton is a 24 year old guy from Maryland who worked three years as a garbage man to pay for college and help support his family. Now he’s going viral because he just found out that he got into Harvard Law School. Finding out that you’ve been accepted to a school you applied to and dream of going is amazing for any kid. But considering Rehan’s journey to get here this is especially moving.
Luckily his brother and cousin recorded him opening up all his acceptance emails from different schools so we can watch his reaction. (the Harvard moment is about 5:00 minutes in)
