HOUSTON – A student from Beaumont is modeling the Thanksgiving spirit.
After receiving the news he is accepted into Texas A&M University College of Medicine, Omar Hamza expressed much gratitude towards his family.
Hamza set his mom up to read tongue twisters on camera. After 20 seconds of reciting hilarious tongue-ties, Hamza switched the paper with his acceptance letter.
Confused at first, Hamza's mother quickly realized what she was reading.

So I told my mom that we were making a funny video by reading tongue twisters off a sheet of paper, BUT what I actually got her to read was my acceptance into A&M Medical School 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/Kpeqhm8i7x

Every second was for them and I can't thank them enough. Hug a loved one today, never forget your roots, and keep grinding y'all!"
