Teen Writes #BlackLivesMatter on College Apps

When given the question "what matters to you and why?" on a Stanford University application, Ziad Ahmed had a very interesting response: #BlackLivesMatter. Written 100 times to be exact.

Turns out that was just what he needed to get his acceptance letter.

According to The Shade Room, Ahmed said: “I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted.  I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability.”
