Great idea for a thread!!

Emily DiDonato on instagram (a few months ago)

Quote:
Hi guys! Sorry I've been MIA on here. I've been busy getting acclimated in my first year at Columbia! Currently studying for my first big exam in my science class. If you would have told me a year ago I would be trying to learn all the parts and functions of the human brain right now, I would have laughed in your face. 😂🤦🏻*♀️📚 Applying to go back to school was absolutely terrifying for me. I went straight from high school to my modeling career but I always felt like I missed out on getting an education When I thought about applying to go back to school last year, I was riddled with self doubt. I constantly felt like I wasn't good enough, smart enough or it had been too long since I'd been in an academic setting to go back. I came up with a million reasons not to do it. Luckily, I talked to some good friends (cc: @cturlington @karliekloss @mirtemaas @laurenikay @hillarywright and Kyle, of course) and finally mustered up the courage to apply. I was ecstatic when I found out I actually got in. It took getting use to at first and I was nervous all the time but now I just feel excited to go to class everyday. Its certainly challenging but fun at the same time. It's not always perfect or easy balancing my career, school, relationships, family, friendships and planning a wedding but I spent a lot of years pushing off so many things I wanted to do because I let my self doubt keep me away. It feels good to finally just do it!
Anyway, I'm working the next few days leading up to my first exam so I'll have to do some studying on set. 📸 That should be interesting. Wish me luck! 😉📚

You should call this thread - models with degrees or models with superior education..people without degrees are not necessarily considered uneducated...
