Drake shouted out Destiny Paris James, from his 2018 “God’s Plan” video, after she posted she would be obtaining her Master’s on IG.
Destiny received a $50,000 scholarship from Drake in the “God’s Plan” video, and she definitely made good on it.
She obtained her bachelor’s degree in public health from the University of Miami in 2019, and she went on to the University of North Carolina to pursue her master’s.
On Tuesday, May 11, Destiny posted on IG, “4 days until I am officially UNC Alum.”
Drake liked the post and commented, “LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DES.”
After being surprised with the $50,000 scholarship in the “God’s Plan” video back in 2018, Destiny took to IG to express her surprise and appreciation.
This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay.
I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments.
I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate.
This was the surprise the whole time. 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! 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. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I’m living out my dreams. God’s Plan
