BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS — You really never know who’s going to respond to your social media posts. Sometimes, it might just be the person you’d least expect.
According to Boston Globe, first-year Boston University graduate student Christopher Sumlin is pursuing a master of science degree in TV producing and management.
As a humble fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he actually felt compelled to write his first grad school paper on Kim Kardashian West, “the reality star turned digital mogul,” as notes his cover sheet.
The source says it was a case study on the reality star and her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood video game.

Well, in pure excitement, he posted a photo of the paper to Twitter regarding his accomplishment — tagging Kim K. and her video game in the caption.
Although it might not have been his intention, both accounts responded to his work.
According to Boston Globe, the official Twitter account for the game replied first, asking the student for a copy of the paper.
What a great assignment! We'd love to see your paper. Feel free to DM us 👨🎓

And likewise, Kim loved it, herself.
The source states that the reality TV star has nearly 57 million Twitter followers, and she re-tweeted Sumlin’s post.

In an email correspondence with the Globe, the student mentioned, “My reaction when she tweeted me was so overwhelming.”
“Not only was my grade good on the paper, one of my favorite celebrities acknowledged me. It was a dream come true.”
Sumlin said he was “deeply surprised and honored for her to have acknowledged” his work.
This actually wasn’t his first encounter with Kim. According to the source, he met Kardashian in 2015 as well. It was at a Los Angeles book signing.
All in all, in regards to Mrs. Kardashian-West, Sumlin states, “Kim…is my favorite; I’ll remember this day forever.”
“Kim needs to be paying your tuition.”
