Drake had quite the eventful Monday when he took a breather from his "God's Plan" video shoot in Miami to visit a few local schools.
After gifting the Miami Senior High School a $25,000 donation and OVO-designed uniforms, it seems like Drake was in the giving mood and surprised a University of Miami student with a $50,000 check towards her tuition.
Taking to Instagram to announce the generous donation, the student, named Destiny James according to her Insta profile, posted a photo with Drake holding up a large $50,000 cheque and wrote a lengthy post thanking the 6 God for his good deed.
Destiny said that she applied for and received multiple scholarships. She assumed no more scholarships would come but was offered to do a video discussing her background and the importance of scholarships. Much to her surprise, the video shoot wasn't actually real and as she was shooting it Drake appeared and surprised her with the donation.
"Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me," she wrote. "I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you."
Leigha Bishop, a preschool teacher from Texas, is dedicated to going above and beyond for her students – even if that means getting her hair done in the same style as her pupils’.
One of her little students came into her class wearing a topknot with cornrows saying that she was unhappy with her new ‘do.
The next day, Leigha came in with the very same hairstyle.
‘I told her, “Don’t be mad at me when I come to school tomorrow with my hair just like that!” Of course, she didn’t believe me!’ she says.
Later that night, she decided to show how beautiful her student looked by getting it done herself.
The photo of the pair has since been retweeted over 37,000 times but Leigha says her student’s reaction was the real standout moment.
‘When I opened the car door to help her out, her face was priceless,’ she tells Refinery29.
‘Her jaw dropped and she just stared at me. I told her, “You thought I was playing? We are going to be cute together!”‘
"Bucky’s Tuition Promise” is a new program that was designed to make higher education more accessible and affordable for students. Currently, in-state students at UW-Madison pay $10,533 a year in tuition and fees. "Many low and middle-income families in Wisconsin simply don't know whether they can afford to come to UW-Madison," Chancellor Rebecca Blank said when she announced the program. "Indeed, if they just read the popular press about student debt and sky-rocketing tuition their assumption will be that they can't. We want to make it very clear to low and moderate-income families in Wisconsin that we're going to do everything we can to make this an affordable school." #news#tuition#affordable#education#income#University#bestof
