Matthew Myslenski was born with cerebral palsy, still, this never stopped him from dreaming. At the age of 7, he decided that he wanted to attend Harvard University, a task that is hard regardless of who you are. However, Myslenski did manage to do exactly that ten years later.
In a now-viral video Matthew and his twin sister, Magdalena, are checking his Harvard application status. Quickly the confetti appears on the screen congratulating Matthew for having made it into Harvard. Naturally, the two siblings were screaming overjoyed.
His sister could in fact be heard screaming “NO WAY!” as she hugged her brother.
As Matthew recounted during an interview with NBC Connecticut, he had been completely shocked to have received the acceptance. He further said that it was one of the best moments of his entire life.
According to Harvard’s student newspaper, only 7.56 percent of early applicants had gained admittance into the Class of 2027. In fact, this was a tough year as that rating had been the second lowest since Harvard’s founding in 1636.
During the interview, Magdalene said that she was so excited to see that Matthew had gotten in and all of his hard work had paid off.
Matthew added that not only did he have to be extremely hard working on the academic front but he also had to put in a lot of physical work in order to manage to get in. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder that greatly affects movement and balance.
