Drake Gets His High School Diploma
Drake may have missed out on school whilst he was working as an actor on the show ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’, but he made sure that when he reached success of phenomenal levels, he went back and got his high school diploma. The Canadian artist entered the show at 15 and stayed on for seven seasons. Last year, he explained what made him take the role…
He told Complex of the decision to drop out of school: "My mother was very sick. We were poor, like broke… The only money I had coming in was off of Canadian TV, which isn't that much money when you break it down.
A season of Canadian television is under a teacher's salary, I'll tell you that much."
The 25-year-old had a joyous moment when he tweeted yesterday: "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 ... Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND."
