On Thursday, a young woman took to social media to share that she graduated with her father, whom she dubbed her best friend of the past 23 years.
The lady, who was only identified by her Twitter handle @billychin_, shared two photos of herself with her father.
In the one photo, taken years ago, a little @billychin_ sit with her dad while the second image shows the duo at their graduation ceremony.
The beautiful student wrote she graduated alongside her 'best friend'. According to her post, she graduated with a post-graduate qualification while her father completed his doctorate degree in education, Briefly.co.za gathered.
"Graduated with my best friend today. 23 years strong. Me: Post grad with distinction. Dad: P.hD in education," she captioned the pics.
Social media user @NoscMang commented: "This is so beautiful. Congratulations to both of you."
Another tweep, @Nandi_Sih, added: "You're phenomenal."
While @billychin_ had the honour of graduating with her father, another student penned a heartbreaking post about his late father.
Briefly.co.za previously reported about a young man who detailed how his dad's depression caused him to take his own life. He added he had to overcome several obstacles to graduate but with God's help he succeeded.
However, the young man explained that he wished his father could have been present on the special day to see him accepting his degree.
