This student has some pretty powerful things to say about race at Cambridge University

Courtney Daniella has had enough of people doubting her.

Unfortunately, Britain’s top universities aren’t exactly known for their diversity. Last year, only 50 black applicants were offered places at Cambridge University, compared with 2,130 white students.

Courtney Daniella is a student at Cambridge, and she’s taken to Twitter to make some pretty powerful remarks about being a black woman at the prestigious university.

First, she addresses the fact that so many people think that she was only accepted to the university because of a “quota” helping her.

Understandably pretty offensive, as she is evidently an incredibly impressive student.

Daniella then shared another galling story.

And then she completely shuts down all the haters.

People are absolutely loving how Daniella is speaking out.

Many find her an inspirational example.

Hopefully, her thread will make people think twice next time they bring up the “quota”.
