High School Valedictorian Accepted to 26 Schools, Earned Over $3 Million in Scholarships
If you're completely mind-boggled over the amount of money Ariana earned for her college education, you're not the only in shock.
"It was a lot to take in," Arianna told ABC's Chicago station WLS. "I received emails, letters. It was just like, 'Come here, come here!' They were bombarding me with all this information."
Luckily, Arianna had a major motivator in her father who encouraged her to break the record of a student who previously earned $1 million in scholarships.
"I planted the seed in Arianna's mind that you could do the same thing," he said.
So, now for the $3 million-question: Where does Arianna plan to attend school? Clearly, any college would be lucky to have her, but since she has her sights set on becoming a successful restaurateur, Arianna chose to go with The Wharton School of Business at The University of Pennsylvania.
Arianna's proven her ability to whip up a ferocious recipe for success, so we're sure whatever she's cooking up for her future chain of restaurants will have us dying for a taste.
