My boyfriend’s friend is looking down on me, for not being an Ivy League student and it makes me feel extremely bad about my self?

I arrived in the us 3 years ago and I’m now 23. I came from a developed country and i speak English with a thick accent, i work as a part-time model and I go to community college cause it’s cheaper and it’s more adaptable with my schedule.

My boyfriend on the other hand is 5 years older than me and he work as a lawyer, we’ve been dating for almost a year , he went to Harvard and unlike me he graduated early while I had to take many gap years because I was working to support my mom before going back to college ( im planning to get into med school). My boyfriend never looked down on me, he always treated me amazingly well even tho we’re different, tells me I’m the prettiest sweetest woman he have ever met, and that I’m his soulemate and I feel the same way about him, but he introduced me yesterday to some of his lawyer friends and one of them was a woman he went to Harvard with. At first she seemed friendly but then she started to make fun of my accent, saying that I probably wasn’t extremely smart for being 23 and in a second year at community college, and that I should probably give up on becoming a doctor, she literally implied that I was probably a whore for being a model, while I never accepted to take naked pics.

My boyfriend defended me ofc and he literally got mad at her. when we were alone he tried to comfort me by telling me that this woman was only jealous because he rejected her when they were studying law, that he loves me and that he doesn’t care about wether I am successful or no. but this woman made me feel so bad cause I feel that I’m not good enough for my boyfriend now. I find this so unfair cause that woman was born in the us and into a rich family, so why did she needed to be this cruel about my situation when we clearly didn’t had the same opportunities?
