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.

Destiny James enrolled for her Master’s degree in Public Health at the University of North Carolina. Celebrating her graduation on Instagram, she captioned her graduation photograph saying “Mama, I mastered it. Daddy, I did it.”
