After a video of 8-year-old Jordin reciting the motivational speech she and the other students at her elementary school say daily went viral, the University of North Texas has announced they have accepted the bright young girl to their school and are giving her a $10,000 scholarship to boot!

“8-year-old Jordin is our new favorite person,” the school said in a Facebook post. “Her mom just sent us this adorable and inspiring video of her. We can’t wait to have her on campus!”

 

UNT’s director of admissions said the video had a big impact on both her and the president of the university.

“Her enthusiasm was felt far across our campus,” she said. “Our president was the one who reached out and said ‘I want to do something for Jordin and her family.’”

Jordin will have a guaranteed spot in the Class of 2030.
