As you might have heard, international sensation Drake graduated from high school on October 17, 2012. For the last five months, he has been working hard with his teacher, Kim Janzen, to finish his studies.
Back when he was 15 years old, he dropped out of Canada's Vaughan Road Academy to co-star on the ever popular teenage show, DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION. Now at 25, even though he's earned $20.5 million in the span of a year, he has realized that putting education as a priority in life can have its benefits.
Clearly proud of his success, he tweeted: "97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school."
On October 29th, Drake was invited to give his high school graduation speech at Jarvis Collegiate Institute. He also mentioned that he'd like to dedicate his high school diploma to his mother, who is a retired teacher. "She always wanted me to graduate," said Drake. "I think I'll sleep a little better tonight knowing that I found a way to follow through."
