DUDA CASTRO

English: Without placing her modeling career to the side, Duda received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University. Located in Orlando, Florida, the ceremony took place on April 3rd, 2015 and was attended by her family, friends, and fans alike. Capturing photos of Duda walking the graduation stage, looking admirably as she shook the hands of her instructors, and expressing their pride in Duda by using the hash tag #ProudOfDC on social media were among the ways DC fans showed their support, having had the opportunity to watch online.

“The greatest accomplishment in life is accomplishing what people said you couldn’t do. Many people doubted me. In their minds, I didn’t have the capacity to graduate from a foreign university. On the contrary, my family, friends, and of course my fans gave me the support and strength I needed, to fight for what I wanted so badly “ – Duda Castro

Not only was Duda celebrating her diploma, but the fact she was nominated for “The Advanced Achievement Award” as well. This award recognizes outstanding achievement throughout the whole degree program, acknowledging qualities of effort, dedication, energy, sacrifice, skill, and leadership. Full Sail recognizes the Advanced Achievement Award as one of the most prestigious awards, indicative of a student who is most likely to succeed. For her, graduation was much more than a diploma. It was a form of closure from childhood bullies that ridiculed her for her American dreams.

“I thank everyone who once doubted my abilities. After all, you helped me grow as a person and gave me strength to fight harder for what I love.” – Duda Castro 

Stars who also graduated from Full Sail University but not limited to, include the talk show host Logan Sekulow, actor Alex Vincent (best known for his role as Andy, in the horror film Child’s Play), director Darren Lynn Boysman (known for directing the film SAW), and the singer Collie Buddz just to name a few.

A modelo brasileira mais uma vez passou por cima de barreiras e realizou mais um de seus sonhos: Se formar em uma universidade no exterior.

Após dois anos e meio estudando período integral e sem deixar sua carreira de lado, Duda se formou em Entertainment Business pela Universidade Full Sail, localizada nos Estados Unidos. A cerimônia, que aconteceu no dia 3 de Abril de 2015, teve a presença dos familiares, amigos e claro seus fãs, que tiveram a oportunidade de assistir a graduação da jovem pelo site da universidade, onde mostraram o seu apoio e força pelas redes socais usando a hashtag #ProudOfDC.

Muitas pessoas duvidaram de mim. Na cabeça delas eu não tinha capacidade o suficiente para me formar no exterior, mas com o apoio da minha família, amigos e claro, dos meus fãs, eu consegui passar por cima de tudo e lutar pelo o que eu tanto queria

Duda não comemorou apenas o seu diploma, mas também o fato de ter sido indicada ao prêmio “The Advanced Achievemnt Award”. Os estudantes indicados para este prêmio são reconhecidos por seu esforço, dedicação, energia, habilidade e liderança. Este prêmio é um dos mais prestigiados em sua universidade e geralmente é indicativo de um aluno que é mais provável que tenha sucesso em seu futuro. Ela conta que a formatura, para ela, foi realmente simbólica por conta de todo o bullying que passou e comentários negativos que recebeu ao dividir seus sonhos com “amigos” quando mais nova.

Agradeço a todos que um dia duvidaram da minha capacidade, afinal de contas, vocês me ajudaram a crescer como pessoa e me deram forças para lutar ainda mais pelo o que eu tanto amo

Outras estrelas também se formaram na mesma universidade que a jovem, como o apresentador de talk show Logan Sekulow, o ator Alex Vincent, mais conhecido pelo seu papel Andy no filme de terror Brinquedo Assassino, o diretor Darre Lynn Boysman, conhecido por dirigir o filme Jogos Mortais, o cantor Collie Buddz, entre outros.

She decided to make a  promise to herself that if Mr. Jones attended her graduation,  she would take a bunch of selfies with him on stage.. And she made it happen!!)
