- Nataly Frias decided to start some online college courses during the pandemic's lockdown period in the US
- The teenager ended up completing two associate degrees, which she will now add to her high school diploma
- The young lady's parents were proud of their angel, especially since they never went to college
So what did you do in the pandemic lockdown if you had time to better yourself and we're not busy at work? Well, if you did nothing, then look away now.
This is because a young teenage lady from Turlock, US, is just about to graduate from both school and college in the same month.
Nataly Frias, a high school student, decided to try out some college online courses to try to better herself during the US lockdown when everything went online.
According to CBS Sacramento, Nataly earned two associate degrees from the comfort of her home while still studying for her high school diploma.
The young teen showed off her two gowns which she will be wearing soon, adding waking up at 5.15 am was finally paying off.
She said what made her successful was her time management, which she described as "insane".
She also noted that her dog tried to eat her homework, and no- not papers, but actually dead animal organs.
Both parents never stepped into college and could not be prouder for their little girl.
As for Nataly, the straight As student hopes to earn her bachelor's degree and, after that, go into nursing.
In what could be considered the direct opposite of our earlier story, an 86-year-old granny proved that it is never too late for education after she graduated with a master's degree.
A tweep identified as @iamwill_johnson has one of those people in his family, his grandmother, who recently graduated with a master's degree at a university in the USA.
Sharing a photo of his granny in a graduation gown with a scarf written "Class of 2021" and a huge smile on her face, the man praised her for being 86 and still graduating from school.
He urged netizens to show some respect for the master's achiever and thanked her for teaching him how to be a student in every situation.
In a video on her grandson's Instagram, the granny thanked God for pushing and seeing her through the graduate program.
