The gorgeous, Oscar-nominated actress - Angela Bassett - is proof that you can do anything you want, at any age! She received an honorary doctorate degree from her alma mater, Yale University, on Monday (May 21).
Bassett is one of Yale’s 10 honorary degree recipients for the year 2018 and this is the third degree the Black Panther star has received from the Ivy League school.
Watch the the joyful video she posted on her Instagram account below:
The 9-1-1 and American Horror Story actress earned her B.A. in African American studies in 1980, and completed her M.F.A. at Yale School of Drama in 1983.
“Hey Everybody you good? My heart is full! God blessed me REAL good!” Dr. Bassett wrote on her Instagram page in a video of the moment. “Thank you @yale for this blessed honor!” Yes, you read that...Dr. Bassett. **insert -> <- emoji**
Can we take a second to acknowledge how INCREDIBLE Angela looks!? She does not age. She has me feeling so inspired! Congratulations, Angela on your accomplishments!
