- A US woman has graduated from the same college her parents graduated from
- She paid tribute to them
- She said she is a graduate because of them
A woman in Philadelphia, US, has graduated from the same college her parents graduated from.
Dr. Brittany Williams shared a picture of herself and her parents at her graduation as a doctor from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Her parents graduated from the same institution in the 1990s.
In her short tribute, Williams wrote: "Because of them, I am! To my mother and father--now my peers!--thank you for everything."
Her parents indeed blazed the trail — in every sense of the word. Commenters on Because of Them We Can's Facebook page, where Williams shared her photo, were equally impressed.
One commenter, Betty Brown, wrote: "Congratulations!!! I am so happy for all of you!!! May your family keep being blessed!!!"
Gloria Nichols wrote: "Congratulations to all of you graduates and trailblazers!" One more commenter said: "Oh how wonderful! Congrats, and you made a beautiful family heritage."
