Exceptional Young Lady wins Drake’s $50k scholarship award, bags Masters degree at US university

A amazing young lady by the name of Destiny James finished a Master’s degree at the University of North Carolina in the United States after receiving a $50,000 scholarship from Drake.

After collaborating with the kids to create a music video, popular Canadian singer Drake generously donated $25,000 to Miami Senior High School in 2018. In the video, he is seen delivering toys and gifts to young children.

Drake chose to award Destiny James with a $50,000 scholarship after learning about her tale after the video’s filming was complete. Destiny James was a University of Miami undergraduate student at the time.

“I had tears in my eye, I screamed, I ran around. [Drake] told me that he had read my story, was proud of me, and that he wanted to give me $50,000 towards my education,” Destiny James told Essence.

She explained that the fund helped her proceed with her university education. “It gave me the opportunity to fully enjoy being a student at UM without financial burden. The scholarship was applied to my senior year at the University of Miami, and it was hands down, my best year of undergrad. I was able to focus on academics, leadership roles, and enjoying college and life without worrying about my tuition would be paid,” she said.
