Drake Donated $50,000 To A University Of Miami Student For College Tuition

Drake was in Maimi Monday to shoot a video for his single “God’s Plan” when he decided to take a break and visit a few local schools.  After gifting a Miami Senior High School with a $25, 000 donation and OVO designed uniforms, he surprised University of Maimi student Destiny James with a $50,00 check towards her tuition.

Drake was inspired by a video Destiny planned to shoot on the importance of scholarships so he popped up with a really big check. In a heartfelt post about the event, it’s not hard to see why her story was so inspiring.

“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. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!’ You don’t understand what this means to me,” she wrote. “I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you.”

This happened today. 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. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. 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. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. 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 🙏🏾
