We often don’t get to live our Childhood dreams, even Nicki Minaj who wanted to be a nurse when she grew up, never got there. She says she wanted to help people less fortunate than herself. But even though she didn’t become a nurse, she is still able to help people.
One way she did that was by paying college tuition for a number of her fans through a scholarship! It all started back in 2017 when one fan jokingly asked Nicki to pay their tuition. While the fan may not have been serious about the inquiry, Nicki was. She offered to help pay tuition for a select number of fans if they proved that they were good students. She ended up awarding 37 people with financial aid after creating the Student Of The Game scholarship.
One of those was a student with the handle @social.enemy_ on Instagram who posted last week that they had just graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.
“I can’t believe that I’m actually saying this out loud, but I am an official college GRADUATE! Bachelor of Science in Biology. Chemistry and Psychology minor. 🧬
This day is even more special because @NICKIMINAJ paid my tuition a few semesters ago, and today is her birthday! ♡
Thank you!” They wrote in their post.
According to their Instagram profile, the fan is planning on attending medical school in the near future.
Nicki Minaj may not be a nurse, but she might have helped someone become a doctor, and that’s just one of the people she has helped.
