Viral Video: Down Syndrome Teen Reads College Acceptance Letter

With all the doom and gloom out there in the world, sometimes, we just need a feel-good story to get us through the day.

Noah Van Vooren, who was born with Down Syndrome, couldn’t contain his sheer glee as he read that he was accepted to Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin.

Doctors had told his parents years ago that he would never “walk, talk or do anything.” Safe to say he proved the experts and cynics wrong.

“It says Dear Noah, yes, you made it,” he reads. “I got accepted!”

In celebration, Noah tears off his sweatshirt and flexes for the camera.

Watch the heart-warming moment below:
