Irony just colonised itself.

On January 28, Kiren Rizvi, a student of Morris Hills High School, New Jersey, uploaded a photo of herself during a presentation for her AP Art History class.

The tweet went massively viral, gaining over 13,500 RTs in under a week.

Rizvi also uploaded other photos from the presentation, all of which were retweeted thousands of times.

It was also shared by popular Twitter accounts such as @CommonWhiteGirl...

And @FirstWorldPains.

"Personally, I didn't really think the presentation was as funny. I tried to mix facts and jokes, and used the powerpoint mostly as visual cues while I explained history facts," Rizvi told BuzzFeed.

Of course, becoming a meme in the first world is the least of Rizvi's worries right now.
