Leah Remini has been accepted into the New York University School of Professional Studies and she’s sharing her news with the world to remind us all, it’s never too late to achieve our dreams!
The King of Queens actress, who turns 51 next month, posted her acceptance letter on social media and described her joy at finally being able to go to college:
“I am so excited, in tears and wanted to share this with you guys,” she begins.
“For someone like me, a person who desperately wanted a higher education and options in my life, coming from a cult and a family who didn’t value an education, this is a very big day for me. This didn’t come easy. This is one of the last chunks of my life that I am taking back for myself from Scientology,” Leah continues.

“It took a lot for me to take this step, for fear that I was not smart enough, not worthy enough, not able to do the work that will be required, my age…. I did it anyway with a lot of encouragement from a very special person in my life. I am ready to do the work and honestly, I’m scared shitless! And I am excited to start on my journey. It’s just never too late is it?
She ended her post with the hashtags #GoAfterYourDreams and #DreamBig.
Best friend, Jennifer Lopez was one of thousands of people who commented on Leah’s post: “So proud of you baby! So happy for you. #NoItsNeverTooLate.”
