An incredible young Lady identified as Destiny James has graduated with a Master’s degree from the University of North Carolina, United States after winning a $50,000 Scholarship award from Drake.
After filming the video, Destiny James, who at the time was an undergraduate student at the University of Miami put up a story which gained the attention of Drake and thereafter decided to award her a $50,000 scholarship.
“I had tears in my eye, I screamed, I ran around. [Drake] told me that he had read my story, was proud of me, and that he wanted to give me $50,000 towards my education,” Destiny James told Essence.
She explained that the fund helped her proceed with her university education. “It gave me the opportunity to fully enjoy being a student at UM without financial burden. The scholarship was applied to my senior year at the University of Miami, and it was hands down, my best year of undergrad. I was able to focus on academics, leadership roles, and enjoying college and life without worrying about my tuition would be paid,” she said.
