“*inhale* Congratulations to my Mom, my Grandma, my great grandma, my sister (a fellow baddie with a BRAIN, nobody how lowkey she is about it!) to the international network of aunties, sisters, and friends, the Evelyns, Kyokos and Kimoras, the women who could not always get their degrees right away but who made damn sure we got ours (and a couple of years early too!),” she began the caption to a carousel of photos and videos of her big day.

“This one’s for you; I must dedicate this degree to all the leading ladies in my life because who am I If not their daughter, granddaughter, sister, and friend? Who am I without who came before and besides? We go TOGETHER. Women, period.”
