17 year old pop sensation Cody Simpson has graduated from high school... as valedictorian!
Despite his hectic schedule, the Australian singer worked hard on school and eventually achieved the highest grades in the senior class in his school in Atlanta, GA. Delivering his valedictorian speech in front of the graduating class earlier this week, Cody emphasised the importance of determination and being intelligent.
"It’s what’s in here that’s going to get to the furthest, regardless of any kind of wealth or looks or material possessions or anything. It’s always what’s in here that’s going to get you the furthest," he said as he gestured to his brain. "Intelligence is the sexiest thing in the entire world."
Cody's words couldn't be more true! He is living proof that we can do anything we set our minds to in spite of other commitments getting in the way. Congratulations, Cody!
