Zendaya Is Now a High School Graduate – and Pal Taylor Swift Sends Her Congrats!
This senior slays!
Zendaya can now add “high school diploma” to her lengthy resume. The stylish senior graduated from Oak Park High School in California on Thursday, alongside superstar Olympian Gabby Douglas.
The 18-year-old shared a photo of herself en route to the commencement ceremony, posing for a selfie in the car while wearing a black-and-white printed outfit. “That senior slay…” she captioned the pic.
In a follow-up post, a beaming Zendaya – in full graduation gown – congratulated her fellow graduates, writing, “Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving … don’t take that for granted.”
She added: “It’s a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold.”
Pal Taylor Swift later congratulated her “Bad Blood” costar on Instagram posting a shot of Zendaya flanked by her classmates, along with the caption: “Cut Throat graduates, I cry endless tears of pride.”
Zendaya and Douglas weren’t the only celebrity grads at the Oak Park ceremony. Disney actress Olivia Holt also earned her diploma on Thursday.
Douglas herself reflected on the big day, taking to Instagram to share her thoughts on hitting that milestone amid challenges.
“Not gonna lie. it was tough to balance school and gym. but i did it,” she wrote. “When u set ur mind to achieve something u can do it.”
