Drake Donates $50,000 to University of Miami Student
Drake might only love his bed and his mama, but he apparently likes being charitable too. After donating $25,000 and OVO-designed uniforms to Miami Senior High School yesterday, Drizzy presented a University of Miami student with a $50,000 grant.
The student, Destiny James, celebrated the news on Instagram by posting an image and video of herself and Drizzy. “This happened today,” she said. “I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments.”
This weekend, James said she was told to come in and shoot a video about the importance of scholarships, but another surprise was in store. “This was the surprise the whole time,” she added. “Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition.”
James went on to thank Drizzy and God for the blessings, signing off with a nod to the OVO leader’s new Scary Hours hit. “God I thank you,” she added. “You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I’m living out my dreams. God’s Plan.”
Yesterday, Drake filmed his “God’s Plan” video at Miami Senior High School, where he announced that he would be donating $25,000 and OVO-designed uniforms to the school.
