She said: "I set out to America on Saturday and I am extremely excited. I would like to thank my family for supporting me through my A-Levels.

"In America, university is quite different and you do not pick your subjects to study until your second year.

"But I am thinking about majoring in Human Rights and making my minor philosophy."
