Ziad Ahmed, a senior at Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, has just achieved his dream of being accepted to Stanford University. In addition to that great honor, he is currently enjoying viral fame after tweeting a unique answer he provided on Stanford's application questionnaire.

It's not like this was the only factor motivating Stanford's decision—Ahmed is a very impressive young man. For his efforts as an activist, he was named one of MTV's top nine teens changing the world, and one of Business Insider's top 15 young prodigies. Here he is posing with Hillary Clinton.
