With all the talk that’s been going on regarding college admissions scandals, it’s nice to hear something of a different tune.
On Thursday, Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons congratulated their daughter, Aoki Lee, on a big accomplishment. At the age of just 16-years-old, Aoki Lee is gearing up to go off to college. And like a proud mama, Kimora made sure to let everyone know of her baby’s success– and she did it as loudly as possible. On Instagram, the parent helps to share the news with everyone. The video shows a sobbing Aoki Lee, as she glances over her Harvard acceptance letter, in the mail.

I’m only 16 and I’m going to Harvard baby! Insert emotional crying face. @kimoraleesimmons “thank god you got in on your own honey cause you can’t row” 😂😂😂 thank you so much to every single person who helped me along the way. I am excited and honored and so so grateful. 👩🏽🎓👩🏽🎓👩🏽🎓 #harvard2023
Now as if it wasn’t enough to congratulate her daughter on such an early honor, Kimora also congratulates her on accomplishing the dream the right way.
She writes the following:
“She’s on her way to #Harvard!! We are sooo super proud of YOU!! Such hard work and only 16! You did it! It took years of super dedication and lots of tears! But HERE YOU ARE!!! GO GIRL!!! Enjoy the journey! We are excited to see the great things you will do! Sorry I’m one of those SUPERLOUD MAMAS! She also got into Dartmouth, Vassar, Barnard etc! Woooo! #BeautyAndBrains!😍🎉❤️🙏🏼💃🏻”
Lee is referring to the college admissions scandal that’s recently been unearthed, where multiple parents are facing backlash and charges for bribing their children’s way into ivy league schools. According to Kimora and Russell, Aoki Lee owes the credit all to strong work ethic.
And if Aoki commits to Harvard, she’ll be joining the class of 2023.
