Bristol Palin: Graduation Girl!
Bristol Palin, wearing a necklace of Blow-Pop lollipops, picks up her high school diploma as she walks across the stage at Wasilla Sports Complex in Wasilla, Alaska on Thursday night (May 14).
“I knew it would be hard work, but I knew I was going to do it,” Bristol, 19, tells People.
Bristol, whose mom is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was “point zero-zero-something” away from graduating with Honors (she had a 3.497 G.P.A.). She says she hopes to go to an area college for a two-year business degree and then a job, possibly in real estate.
