There are no limits to what hard work and determination can bring you.

An incredibly talented teen from North Carolina has been accepted in more than 100 colleges and offered $4.5 million worth of scholarships offers,  according to Ms. Harrison and her mother, who kept track of the financial offers on an Excel spreadsheet.

Jasmine E. Harrison, a 17-year-old senior at The Academy at Smith in Greensboro, N.C., was accepted to 113 colleges and universities out of the 115 she applied at.

“When I got the first couple in the mail, I was like, ‘Okay, this is really happening.’ I didn’t really think I’d be able to do that,” Harrison told People.

“At first I could not believe it, but then I was like, ‘Wow.’ I felt honored,” Ms. Harrison said via NY Times.

“It was overwhelming at first because there were so many options,” she said. “I could go anywhere, and discover who I am.”

So after being accepted in all these colleges, Harrison chose Bennett College where she has a full scholarship and will major in biology hoping someday she will become a NICU nurse, according to a report by Fox News.
