Natalia Bryant, the oldest daughter of the late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, graduated from high school on Friday.
Vanessa Bryant recorded her daughter walking across the stage to receive her diploma.
Natalia Bryant was accepted to the University of Southern California earlier this spring, “Today” reported. She also signed a modeling contract, the website reported.
“Congratulations Natalia! We will ALL be with you every step of the way,” Vanessa Bryant captioned the video.
Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were killed in a helicopter crash along with seven other people in January 2020. Last month, Vanessa and Natalia honored Kobe Bryant when he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Vanessa Bryant also showed a photograph of her daughter’s bejeweled mortarboard bearing a quote attributed to her late husband. The quote, signed “Dad,” reads “Everything negative -- pressure, challenges -- is all an opportunity for me to rise.”
