She’s come a long way from the girl ridiculed by people throughout social media and who was even asked by defense attorney Don West if she understood English.
In her hometown of Miami, less than three miles from where her friend Trayvon Martin is buried, Rachel Jeantel was presented her high school diploma Friday. She said graduating was fulfilling a promise she made to him before his death. The moment was made extra special by the attendance of Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s mother.
“Her coming is like having Trayvon there saying, ‘You did it. You proved people wrong,’” Jeantel said.
Yes Rachel proof your haters wrong, Congrats girl !
