On July 28, 2011, 17-year-old Morolake Akinosun tweeted her Five Year Plan: in 5 years, she claimed she would have graduated from college and be on her way to competing in the Olympics. Now, five years later, her prediction has come true! On July 30, 2016 she retweeted her original tweet, adding that in December she will have graduated from the University of Texas and that next week she's going to Brazil to compete in Track and Field. All her hard work paid off!

It's always heartening to see that dreams really are achievable, and inspiring to see someone who has worked so hard reach her goals.

Clearly, a lot of people feel the same way—Akinosun's tweet on July 30 has already been retweeted 160,000 times and garnered 310,000 likes on Twitter.
