By: Brianna Wigfall
Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons youngest daughter Aoki Lee Simmons is a junior in high school preparing for college and Yale is her top and only choice. The 16-year-old is infatuated with education and learning and its plastered all over her Instagram profile. Her interest is in archaeology, and she’s traveled many places digging up history.
“Living my best and dustiest life as the youngest archaeologist on the Pollentia Roman dig in Spain!” she said in a post on Instagram. Aoki also loves to read, and she expressed her excitement for books during a visit to Yale saying, “Some things I did today! I visited the rare books library! (I’m a rare books collector myself, so that was really special) And the classics library and engineering department! I rubbed the lucky toe as well! I was so impressed with the well-curated classics library and the woman engineers club at Yale! Not to mention the beauty of the entire campus!”
During her May visit, Aoki loved the presence of Yale and had wishful thinking of attending in Fall 2019. “My mom and I had an amazing experience today at Yale University! Definitely one of my favorite schools ever! Special thanks to my tour guide and my academic mentor and friend for making the visit so enjoyable! I could definitely see myself attending here in fall 2019! Fingers crossed I get in!”
Aoki is doing more than keeping her fingers crossed; she took to Instagram to show Yale just how much she wants to be apart of their institution. She asked for everyone’s help in doing so by saying, “So excited that I submitted my application to Yale University! This is really my dream school, and I did my absolute best putting this application together! I put my heart and soul into it! A throwback to some pictures of a very happy girl on her first Yale visit! Thank you to everyone who read my essays and gave me feedback and supported me! Once I walked through the halls, I knew it was the place for me! Fingers crossed I get in! Everybody tag Yale and Yale admissions and wish me luck! So excited.” She continued by saying, “It’s in the hands of the lord and the admissions board!”
Aoki has been a model in the past, but all she can see is Yale in her future. Good luck Aoki!
