Mutli-Platinum Artist, Executive Producer, and now College Graduate with an “Honorary Degree” Priceless.
Armando Christian Pérez, known as “Pitbull” or “Mr. 305” received his honorary degree from Miami’s Doral College Tuesday in honor of his support for education. He shared some touching words about growing up in Miami and his passion for education during the ceremony.
“I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn’t have the right address,” the über-successful music superstar said. “That’s why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up. That’s why Doral Academy was founded, and that’s why I helped create SLAM [Sports Leadership and Management Academy] in the neighborhood where I grew up…a school that offers a choice for students, like me, students who need someone to inspire them, someone to believe in them.” – Courtesy of E!online.
Earlier today, he tweeted his graduation pic with the caption, “for those that didn’t believe #dale.” In addition to his joyous expression on his face for his loyal fans, Pitbull released another gesture with his hand in the upright position much relating to Mr. 305 but without the 05.
