Cardi B sent a special shout out to the high school and college graduating classes of 2020 as she congratulated them for their achievements and also gave some sound advise


The COVID-19 pandemic has put a damper on graduation plans for high school and college graduates, who are faced with attending virtual ceremonies.

In light of the situation, Cardi B teamed up with Facebook to share some words of encouragement for the 2020 graduating classes.


Cardi B started by congratulating all the students and assured them, "don't let no coronavirus or no nothing take this special moment from you!"

The Bronx rapper also gave some words of advice for students. She started by addressing those who had already chosen their schools and were still deciding on which classes to take.


Cardi B encouraged the students to choose a class that would be beneficial to the job they hope to pursue in the future; she said: "make sure you research careers that is around the money you want to make."

She explained that graduation was more than just the diplomas they are about to receive and more than a graduation ceremony and is about the knowledge they have acquired.


The "Bodak Yellow" rapper admitted that she had great memories of high school, and although she didn't finish college, she still went and had an enjoyable experience. However, Cardi hasn't ruled out completing college, in 2019 she said:

"Maybe when I'm older I'll have the time to go to college. Why not? It's never too late to make your dreams come true."
