Vanessa Bryant is feeling grateful and got her followers to celebrate with her in her new joy. Taking it to her official Instagram account the Kobe Bryant’s widow on March 30 revealed that her 18-year-old daughter, Natalia has been admitted into the University of Southern California.
Vanessa shared a video of the will-soon-be university student jumping up and down with a huge smile on her face after receiving the news that she was actually approved to go in for higher education. She was spotted wearing a grey sweatshirt that had “USC” printed in red letters in the corner and red pants.
“I got in! I got in! I got in!” Natalia exclaimed while looking at who was most likely Vanessa behind the camera. “This is insanity!” could also be heard just before the video got to the end. Vanessa added a gracious caption that mentioned Natalia’s late dad Kobe Bryant and late sister Gianna to the post.
“Tears of joy. I’m SO happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so PROUD OF YOU. I am so PROUD OF YOU!! Your hard work and dedication was so worth it. You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded. I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much! #USC #Trojan #FightOn”
Vanessa’s followers weighed in almost immediately after the video was shared to show their supports with many writing, “Congratulations!” and one wrote, “Wow, I’m tearing up at the perseverance it took for her to remain focused on her studies. WAY TO GO NANI!!.” Another exclaimed, “Awesome FIGHT ON Natalia!!”
Natalia’s joyful news about being approved to study in the university follows after she recently inked with the IMG modelling agency, of which Vanessa shared the news with a lovely black and white professional photo of Natalia along with a caption from both the agency and herself in Feb.
“NOW REPRESENTING: #NataliaBryant! ‘I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age. I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.’ – @nataliabryant,” the caption read along with Vanessa’s own words which included, “I’m so happy for you! I love you Nani!”
