She was also offered a staggering $3.7 million worth of scholarship funding, more than any other college bound senior in the United States so far this year.

With 115 admissions at her disposal, Love is yet to make up her mind and plans to visit the schools over the next few weeks and make a decision by May 1. 

She will be first generation college student in her family.

“I started applying in September, and just kept applying and applying until my tiny mailbox at home was suddenly overflowing with letter after letter and dozens of scholarship offers,” she told The Times-Picayune.

According to reports, Love helps her parents raise her four younger siblings ages nine to 15, and her 15-year-old brother lives with cystic fibrosis. She was born to teen parents.

“This really is a dream come true. All my hours of studying, writing and classes have paid off in the best possible way and I can’t wait to move forward and start my college education,” she was quoted as saying.

Love is an honor roll student with a 3.5 grade point average.

Her parents Yolanda and Anthony were quoted as saying that her accomplishments have inspired them to consider returning to school.
