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.
