MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The teenage daughter of Somali immigrants has a tough choice to make after her upcoming graduation from a private high school in the Twin Cities area.

Eighteen-year-old Munira Khalif has been accepted at all eight Ivy League schools - and then some.

Khalif downplays her achievements and says she’s had her share of disappointments. She says her pile of college acceptance letters is “a humbling experience.” The Fridley teen attributes her success to her school, community and a close family that values education.

Mounds Park Academy officials say Khalif has a stellar academic record and high ACT score. The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1CsK2OJ ) says that besides Princeton, Yale, Harvard and the other Ivy League schools, Khalif has been accepted at Georgetown, Stanford and the University of Minnesota.
