Danielle Fishel is a College Graduate!

Danielle Fishel has been hitting the books and she has finally graduated college!

The 31-year-old actress told her fans the exciting news on her Tumblr.

“I am officially a college graduate! I took my last two undergraduate finals today and I am so happy, relieved, and proud. Yeah, I’m super proud of myself. :),” Danielle shared.

Danielle added, “After my 27th birthday, I made the decision to stop letting fear be a factor in fulfilling my dreams and living the life I wanted, so with a little encouragement from friends and family, I enrolled. And I went. I went every day and took copious notes and studied my little old lady heart out. Yes, I was sometimes the oldest person in class, I was whispered about many times, and I did forget how to do a few math equations. But I persevered and sometimes I wasn’t the oldest person in class, some of the whisperers became good friends, and I did so well in math, I even became a tutor. And that is how I met my fiancé. :).”

Congrats Danielle!

    Her face looks awful, like its been botoxed.

  • Jess

    Good for her! She’s not that old anyway. She’s only a few years older than the college students, and besides, she sort of has a babyface, so I’m sure she didn’t stand out like a sour thumb!

  • Jess

    * stick out like a sore thumb! Gah, it’s me that should go back to college haha.

  • melissa B

    @Jess: LOL I was thinking the same thing, 27 is only a few years older than most college students. 27 isn’t old at all. I see many older people than that in college now and no one cares. They probably just recognized her is all.
