She's my best friend, she’s with me every day. I'm the first person in my family to do this. I'm bringing, I'm bringing the degree back to the hood and show everybody in the neighborhood. And then, you know, my baby's getting her degree too. We’re doing it on the same day that’s even better! Congratulations! Congratulations! Thank you! You guys met here! We did meet here. I met her in a Zoom theater class. And I used to stare at her every day. I got distracted in class, and she noticed that I was staring at her. And then one day I started... Uh, she became friends with me on Facebook, I started liking everything she posted to get her attention. I started reacting to everything. Eventually it worked! You have a child? We have a child! You're gonna raise your child with these degrees in your hands. I'm telling you! We got to show her you know, it's possible. She has to do it too. I'm the first in my family to graduate from college.
