We all saw the video, now meet the sassy student in it: Chrysantha Alicia Palan

She lit up the graduation stage with her fabulous vogue walk and social media went crazy over the young lady.

Now, let's meet the student who did graduation her way. Chrysantha Alicia Palan became an instant internet sensation when the video of her owning the graduation stage went viral.

And, she said it is about time people started to lighten up when it comes to academics.

On Monday, the 22-year-old student received her Honours degree in Media and Cultural Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

Palan walked on the stage just oozing confidence before she ripped off her sunglasses to receive her degree.

Her actions were obviously not something that's often seen at graduation, but that's what made it so spectacular.

The University posted the video of Palan strutting her stuff on their Facebook page and it has in under a week been watched over 90 000 times.

According to Northglen News, Palan wanted to show people not all academics are nerds.

“That girl in the video is who I am everyday. I just wanted people to see that academics are not all serious but can be fun and bubbly too. The attention I’ve been getting is overwhelming but I love it.", she said.

As for her parents, they're super proud of her. Her mother, Alice Palan, commented on the university's video to let people know she is Palan's mother.

"This cat walk beauty slay queen is my daughter. #ProudMommaBear You rock Chrissy. You have perfected the red carpet. Looking forward to your #Masters." the proud mom wrote.
