During the filming of his ‘God’s Plan’ music video, Drizzy continued giving back to fans, with not only new music, but he presented a Miami University Student with a $50,000 scholarship.

While Drake stomped through the school grounds of Miami Senior High School for the ‘God’s Plan’ visual and where he also donated $25k and OVO-designed uniforms for students, Destiny James was down the way at U of Miami where she wasn’t expecting the gift she received.

Taking to her Instagram, James celebrated the moment with selfies and a video featuring the 6 God, where she thanked the rapper and spoke about her school journey.


This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!’ You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I’m living out my dreams. God’s Plan
