Honestly, we can't watch this video and not cry. 16-year-old Aoki has worked HARD for this Harvard acceptance. https://t.co/Oo0sgqJzDJ— E! News (@enews) March 29, 2019
Kimora's 16 year old daughter Aoki has been accepted to Harvard, as well as Dartmouth, Vassar, Barnard and wait listed at Yale (Aoki had previously gone to a school for the gifted in Los Angeles and has expressed hopes to study archeology). Kimora posted the video to Instagram, celebrating as Aoki's brother reads the acceptance letter.
Kimora wrote on Instagram: "She’s on her way to #Harvard!! We are so proud of YOU!! Such hard work and only 16! You did it! It took years of super dedication and lots of tears! But HERE YOU ARE!!! GO GIRL!!!”
Kimora says in the video “You don’t understand, this has been a ride for me. I’m two out of two kids in college. I have two boys left,..quite honestly she really did it on her own merit and we’re so really proud. Yoki can’t row or anything like that. There was really no hope for us in that area. I’m just so proud that you did it on your own...Praise the Lord."
