Singer and actress Maudy Ayunda has decided to go to Stanford University instead of Harvard.

She posted a photo of herself wearing the signature Stanford University hoodie on her Instagram account @maudyayunda on Monday, saying: “My story continues... I am choosing Stanford!”

In the same post, Maudy explained that she had chosen Stanford for its proximity to Silicon Valley, its learning approach and its resources.

She also said that, at Stanford, she could do a joint degree of MBA and Education, which is a combination of her passion.

“I am forever grateful and will use this opportunity to better myself and hopefully my society and the world,” she said.

Maudy made headlines after announcing on Instagram on March 4 that she had been accepted at two Ivy League universities, Harvard and Stanford, for her master’s degree.

As reported by tempo.co, studying at Stanford Business school had been her dream, however Maudy was not sure she would be accepted at Stanford.

As she was not sure about her chances, she chose to try Harvard, which was also a long-held dream of hers.

Maudy graduated from Oxford University in late 2016, where she had enrolled for a degree in philosophy, politics and economics.

After her graduation, she continued her singing and acting career. (gis/kes)
