A college student is going viral after sharing a powerful message about higher education.
Patrick Miller went to community college after graduating from high school. A year later, he started classes at his “dream school”.
As Miller explained in a now-viral TikTok, he owes a lot of his success to that transitional year.
He got a 4.0 GPA, racked up 85 volunteer hours and gained some work experience. Then, he got ready to transfer.
The TikToker shared a list of the schools
that admitted him in his video, along with
their competitive acceptance rates.
“Normalize going to community college!! I worked very hard this year and it paid off,” he captioned the clip.
The moral of Miller’s video seemed to resonate with plenty of TikTok users, who praised his success and shared their own experiences as transfer students.
“YESS. Another fellow transfer student. So proud,” one user wrote
