It's hard to find people who don't love pizza. It's pretty much the staple diet for college students. 

But, we bet you never thought you love of pizza could get you accepted into college. 

The dream came true for one lucky girl in America. Her love of pizza deliveries landed her a place in Yale. 

Carolina Williams just graduated from Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tennessee, after she wrote an outstanding short essay about ordering pizza from her favourite pizza parlour, Papa Johns. 

Speaking to , she said that writing about pizza was the first thing that came into her mind, and decided to go with it. She also ranked in the top 10 of her graduating class. So, she's pretty smart! 

'Honestly, I thought I should go with the first thing that popped in my head. It was completely genuine.'

The Yale admissions officer who read Carolina's essay said 'As a fellow lover of pizza, I laughed out loud (then ordered pizza) after reading your application.'

However, despite being accepted into Yale, she's decided to attend Auburn University in Alabama to pursue business.
