We all remember ripping open that envelope and going apeshit after finding out we got into college. For some people it was the college of their choice. For others, it was just A COLLEGE which was better than nothing.
Rachel Grace, a young woman with Down Syndrome, not only got into college but the college of her choice. As you can see from the video above, she was absolutely pumped.
Grace, 20, applied to the Career Independent Living and Learning Studies program at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. The CILLS program is a certificate program for students with intellectual disabilities. It only accepts a handful of students each year and Rachel was accepted for 2016-2017.
Grace’s mom Deb told NBC News she has been “shocked” by the attention it’s garnered, but she said Grace isn’t fazed by it. “She just takes things in stride,” Deb Grace said.
Oh then she’ll be just fine in college.
