No surprise this video posted of a Pennsylvania teen opening a college acceptance letter is lighting up the Internet.

North Penn High School student Rachel Grace, who has Down syndrome, was recently accepted to East Stroudsburg University – but she didn’t know it until she pulled the letter out of the envelope and read it for the camera.

As her own words sink in, Grace’s eyes grow wide and she shouts, “I got in! I’m going to college!”

While applying, she had considered four special needs schools, but said she liked the idea of moving out and being independent, according to WTXF.

East Stroudsburg University welcomed her on Facebook, sharing her video with the message, “Welcome to ESU Rachel Grace! We are lucky to call you a Warrior!”
