Check Out How These Latinas Are Clapping Back With The Designs On Their Graduation Caps

Anyone who has been through college will tell you it’s not an easy journey at all. But once graduation comes around, you want to celebrate and take pride in your accomplishment –which is what these educated Latinas are doing with the messages on their graduation caps.

Check them out and find out which cap best illustrates your journey through college.

With graduation just a few days away, it’s time to celebrate all of your hard work and send a message to every person who ever doubted you.

Keep on blooming. ??

Because no matter how long this might have taken you, or how difficult it might’ve been, what matters is you never gave up.

Having your family tell you, “Ponte las pilas,” paid off in the long run.

Even though there were times that you really wanted to give up, you didn’t. And now all of your hard work is starting to pay off.


It’s worth it!

As long as you continue dreaming big and hustling hard, you’ll be able to achieve anything you want and this cap illustrates that perfectly:

There’s no limit. You just have to want it bad and work for it hard.

If there’s one thing you can do with your cap design at graduation, it’s CLAP BACK.

You’re bigger and better than anything and anyone who has ever tried to bring you down.

Especially in the midst of our current political climate, being the child of immigrants and a college graduate means everything.

After all of the sacrifices your parents have made for you, getting this diploma is the best way you can pay them back.

So if your parents worked really hard to offer you a better future, now is your chance to thank them.

esto es por ustedes y para ustedes?

Gracias a million times.

And witnessing how hard they’ve worked has definitely been an inspiration, just like this graduation cap:

Your parents never slacked off, and neither did you. ??

To some it’s just a two-hour ceremony, but if you’re a first-generation college student, this graduation ceremony means the world to you and your family.

As the first college graduate in your family, now all of your younger siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, will want to follow your footsteps.

In shorter terms: this is a HUGE FRKN DEAL. So don’t be shy – show off how bad ass you are!
