Remember Drake’s many acts of kindness in his 2018 ‘God’s Plan’ music video? Well, turns out it continued off camera too…

In 2018, Drake donated a $50,000 scholarship to University of Miami student Destiny James, who graduated in May 2019 with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Health. Earlier this week, James shared a recent post on Instagram celebrating her completion of her Master’s degree at the  University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Public Health.

The Grammy Award Winner celebrated her success by commenting on her Instagram post which received over 61K ‘Likes”, which is now going viral on social media.

In a blog post from the University of Miami, they shared that James had lost her father in her second semester, which made it hard for her to carry on with her studies on top of financial difficulties. When Drake offered her the scholarship, she explained that this was something she would have never seen coming:

"If you would have told me my freshman year that I would be graduating from here today, I probably wouldn't have believed it."

Congratulations to Destiny James and the Class of 2021!
