八所常春藤大学向一移民女孩伸出橄榄枝(双语)

  Kelly Hyles, a senior at the selective High School for Math, Science and Engineering at the City College of New York, was recently accepted to all eight Ivy League schools. The student, who came to the US from Guyana when she was 11 years old, toldPeople.com she’s been in shock since receiving the good news.

  最近,凯利·海尔斯,精英中学纽约城市学院数学科学工程高中的毕业生,于近日收到了所有八所常春藤盟校的录取通知。11岁从圭亚那移民(微博)美国的凯莉,告诉People.com(美国人民网(微博)),自她收到这一好消息,她就一直感到难以置信。

  “I was really happy. I’m still in disbelief. I am so grateful,” she said.

  “我真的很开心。我仍然不敢相信。真是太感谢了,“她说。

  In addition to all the Ivies, Hyles also received acceptance letters to Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Johns Hopkins University, Today.com reported. In total, she was accepted to a staggering 21 schools. What’s more, she told Pix11 that, for the most part, she’ll get a free ride to any college she chooses to attend.

  今日网(Today.com)报道,除了所有常春藤盟校,海尔斯也收到了麻省理工学院和约翰斯·霍普金斯大学的录取通知书。总之,她一共收到了21所学校的offer。除此之外,她告诉Pix11,在大多数情况下,她总能免费到达她选择参观的学校。

  The student’s accomplishments certainly back up her acceptance letters.

  海尔斯的成绩肯定不负她收到的这些录取通知书。

  Hyles participates in a competitive biomedical research program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, takes college-level courses, has an impressive 99.63 GPA and is valedictorian of her class, People.com reported.

  People.com报道,在西奈山伊坎医学院,海尔斯参与了一个有竞争力的生物医学研究项目,她也上过大学水平的课程,GPA(平均分)达到了99.63分;同时,她还是班上的毕业生代表。

  But the student’s road to success was no walk in the park for her or her family.

  但是,她的成功之路离不开自己的努力以及家人的支持。

  Hyles and her single mother, Anette, came to the United States so the student could have a better education, Today.com reported. The mother works two jobs to support her family — one as a home health aide and another as a nurse’s aide during the overnight shift.

  Today.com报道,为了能让海尔斯得到更好的教育,单身母亲安妮特带着她来到美国。为了养家,安妮特有两份工作——一为家庭健康助手,一为夜班护士助手。

  The student puts in a great amount of effort for her education too. On school days, she travels 1.5 hours from her home in Queens waking up at 5:30 a.m. to do so. She takes a combination of trains and buses to arrive at her school in Harlem, according to Today.com. She told CNN that she only gets about 5 hours of sleep a night.

  根据Today.com所述,海尔斯自己也十分努力。在上学的日子,她每天早上5点30分就要起床,从皇后区的家到学校要花一个半小时。她需要搭乘火车和公交车两种交通工具,才能到达位于哈莱姆的学校。她告诉CNN,每晚她只能睡5个小时左右。

  “Sometimes, I wanted to sleep late or go to the movies or a party with my friends, but I had to prioritize,” she said.

  “有时候,我想睡懒觉,去看电影或跟朋友聚会,但我不得不将一切事情排好序,”她说。

  Hyles told Today.com that her success wasn’t just rewarding for her.

  海尔斯告诉Today.com,她的成功不仅仅是对自己的回报。

  “When I got into the colleges, I told my mom, I was like, ‘Oh, these acceptance letters are as much mine as they are yours,’” she said.

  “当我收到各个大学的录取通知时,我告诉妈妈我所想的,‘哦,这些录取通知书是我的,也是你的,”她说。

  Hyles hasn’t decided which college she’ll ultimately attend, but is leaning toward Harvard, according to People.com. No matter what, she definitely has no shortage of options.

  根据People.com,海尔斯目前还没有决定要上哪所大学,但是目前她偏向于哈佛。无论如何,她绝对不乏选择。
