Talk about being able a multitasker. Despite performing on Dancing with the Stars, juggling a music career and starring in TV shows, singer-actress Zendaya Coleman managed to graduate high school this week.
Zendaya, alongside Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas, led Southern California's Oak Park High School's Class of 2015 into the sunset Thursday (June 12). "It's really important for young people to see other young people striving to get their education. Both my parents are educators, so hopefully I inspire some kids out there my own age to go out there and keep doing it," the 18-year-old told ABC7Chicago.
The "My Jam" singer also shared a motivational message on her Instagram page, showcasing a photo of herself in a gold cap and gown. "Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the priviledge of recieving...don't take that for granted. To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do! (If I can get through it then anyone can) It's a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold. All my love #sorryforgettingdeep," she wrote.
Taylor Swift even chimed in on the celebratory occasion by saluting Zendaya on her big accomplishment. "Cut throat graduates. I cry endless tears of pride," she wrote as the caption to a photo of Zendaya with her graduating class.
