Danielle Fishel: 'Girl Meets World' star graduates college and announces engagement
"I am officially a college graduate!" Fishel writes in a Tumblr post. "I was too afraid of being the old lady in class, of being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations. 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."
Not only did enrolling in college lead to Fishel's personal satisfaction, but it also led her to the man of her dreams. She writes that she became a tutor and "that's how I met my fiancÚ."
"I am a very fortunate person and have been lucky to do many exciting things and to fulfill so many of my dreams but graduating from college is easily among my proudest achievements in life," Fishel says. "I hope that if any of you are in school or thinking about going to school, or have wanted to go to school for a long time but just keep finding reasons to put it off, you will listen to me when I tell you...go. Go for yourself. You CAN do it."
