Harvard University is a private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, established in 1636, whose history, influence, and wealth have made it one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

It seems like his perseverance was all worth it for he has been chosen as of the 5% of applicants accepted in the prestigious school Harvard University. It is a place where successful men such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and former US President Barrack Obama attended to.
It is said that Romnick has received a letter from the prestigious school and will be taking advantage of a full scholarship to Harvard covering tuition, accommodation, plane tickets and clothing as ISM (International School Manila) claimed.
“This amazing blessing that I have received will be looked upon by many as an achievement, but if I were to be very honest, I truthfully believe that what happened to me was nothing short of a miracle,” – Romnick said.
In addition, he stated that many of his achievements may be forgotten by lots of people, but what his aiming for is for them to know how GreenEarth as helped him and his community.
