BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. - A 16-year-old Louisiana student has become an overnight internet sensation after posting a video showing his reaction to learning he had been accepted to Harvard.

The viral video shows Ayrton Little surrounded by classmates before erupting into cheer. After the video was posted to Twitter Tuesday, it was viewed more than 3 million times in 24 hours.

 Little told the Huffington Post that going to Harvard has always been his dream. He plans on studying math and computer science. When he graduates, Little says he wants to find a job on Wall Street with the intention of opening a non-profit to help children in Louisiana.

According to the Huffington Post report, Little is not the only one in his family to get a college acceptance notice this month. Last week, his brother was accepted to Stanford University.
