Leah Remini is headed to NYU

Leah Remini, 50, is going back to school this fall. The actress and host of “Scientology and the Aftermath” announced this week that she’s been accepted to New York University’s associate’s program in Liberal Arts. “I am so excited, in tears and wanted to share this with you guys,” Leah captioned a photo of her acceptance letter on Instagram on May 20. “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,” Leah explained. “This didn’t come easy. This is one of the last chunks of my life that I am taking back for myself from Scientology. 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 s——s! And I am excited to start on my journey. It’s just never too late is it?” Before signing off, Leah thanked NYU and a friend who works with the remote tutoring organization, Innovative Education Solutions. “You are an amazing man and anyone needing someone to cheer them on, to walk them through this (sometimes) intimidating process, who are scared to take this first step, should choose you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she gushed, adding, “#goafteryourdreams #dreambig.” Leah’s close friend Jennifer Lopez quickly chimed in to congratulate her, writing in the comments, “So proud of you baby! So happy for you ❤️ #noitsnevertoolate.” “Sex and the City” alum Kristin Davis helped Leah celebrate her happy news, too, commenting, “So much love to you Leah! ❤️
