When you are a kid, so many grown-ups ask you that timeless question: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Some kids dream of being an astronaut or a fireman.

But for Nikora Wade, he always dreamed of being a doctor ...

And now the Kiwi student is going viral for his heartwarming reaction to finding out he has been offered a place in the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery programme at Auckland University.

@the_nanboy Got the email today whānau!! As promised, here’s my reaction 🫶🏽 #nevergiveup ♬ original sound - Nikora Wade

Posted to TikTok, the footage starts off with Wade very mysteriously saying he has received an email and he can't focus.

The video - which has received more than 210,000 views - then shows his whānau gathered around a laptop as they read out the acceptance letter.

Unsurprisingly, Wade is left absolutely speechless, while tears ensued.

Alongside the emotional video, he wrote: "Got the email today whānau!! As promised, here’s my reaction #nevergiveup."

Congratulations Nikora!
