Florida teen reacts to acceptance to all eight Ivy League universities

Getting accepted into one Ivy League university is an amazing achievement, never mind all eight - but that's exactly what this Florida teenager has done.

Ashley Adirika, a 17-year-old first generation Nigerian-American student, said that she decided to "shoot her shot" when filling out her applications.

The Miami Beach Senior High School graduate will study government at Harvard later this year.
