17-year-old Mikayla Lowry’s family was having financial difficulties, and the chance of her going to the university was quite slim.
However, all that changed after she attended Beyonce and Jay Z’s On the Run II concert. The young girl was to be the recipient of a scholarship worth over N36million courtesy of the power couple.
The good news was announced by rapper, DJ Khaled, and Mikayla and her friends got to know she was the receiver of the award after the rapper took to describing her.
Khaled described the winner of the scholarship as a future marine biologist and keystone vice president among other things.
The young girl could not contain her excitement and on camera, she said:
“I’m shaking! Thank you so much.’”
Beyonce and Jay Z hope to award up to N362.5 million worth of scholarships in 11 cities through the Shawn Carter Foundation and the BeyGOOD Initiative.
