(Atlanta Black Star) Iyore Olaye reached a major milestone. She recently graduated from Ivy League Cornell University with a unique achievement. She was the only Black female in the 2016 chemical engineer class.

The Hillside, New Jersey native finished school in May and shared her accomplishment on Facebook Tuesday.

“Three months ago I graduated from one of the best schools in the world, the greatest engineering program in the Ivy League, in one of the most rigorous majors at Cornell,” she wrote in her post. “There were moments of defeat and moments of victory through it all. I am thankful that I had continuous love and encouragement from friends and family who went out of their way to see me through to my success.”

According to her LinkedIn page, Olaye served as an undergraduate researcher, an engineering admissions diversity fellow, and president of the National Society of Black Engineers during her time at Cornell.
