Woman Celebrates When She Witnesses Uber Driver Read His Acceptance To Harvard
Unfortunately, we see a lot of terrible stories associated with Uber and other ride-share apps but this definitely isn’t one of them. No, this story of persistence, hard work and the power of being genuinely happy for other people’s success is making the rounds and we can’t stop watching it.
On, July 14th, 2019, Twitter user @718rubyy went viral when she tweeted a short video of her recent Uber ride.
In the tweet, she explains that her Uber driver shared with her that she might just be his lucky charm. What might have read as a pickup line, is actually some really awesome news. The tweet explains that — after two years of trying — the unnamed Uber driver has finally been accepted into Harvard University!
“My God, guys! My Uber driver got into Harvard,” she can be heard cheering. “Black Excellence!”
As if that good news wasn’t enough, the response of his passenger made the announcement even better. The Dominicana Uber patron can be heard on the video celebrating and hyping up her driver.
Her Uber driver took the congratulations with a balance of pride and shyness — ducking away from the camera while recording.
Twitter was quick to join in on the congratulations for this Harvard-bound young man.
This Twitter user had some words of encouragement and advice for the new Harvard student. When you’ve got good momentum, don’t slow down. We’re sure he’ll keep working towards his unquestionably bright future.
Others users pointed out that his passenger’s excitement on video is positively infectious.
This Dominicana must know that when one of us win, we all win. So, naturally, it makes sense to celebrate this young man’s accomplishments with the energy that we see on the video.
Some Twitter users suggested the Harvard student should continue to explore his luck.
Luck isn’t everything. We’re sure getting into Harvard took a lot of hard work as well. STILL, this new student should take full advantage of this good luck streak and hope for more positivity coming his way.
Like any good story, followers have been looking for the romance in this tale.
In fact, some were projecting their own romantic hopes for the pair. No word if there’s a love connection resulting from this Uber meet-cute, but we’ll keep an eye out for updates. In the meantime, we ship it.
However, some Twitter users saw it more as an ingenious pick-up line instead of true love.
We can see how it would seem that way but the news looks pretty genuine. Either way, we respect his game if it’s truly a line.
No matter what you feel about a possible romance between the two, one thing was agreed upon by all.
Uber story or not, this is the kind of content we like to see on the TL. Good luck at Harvard next year, mystery Uber driver!
