Graduation season is in full swing, and for most students that means a new chapter is on the horizon. Families gather to celebrate their graduate, everyone asks where so-and-so is headed in the fall, and for many, it’s the marking of a major accomplishment and adulthood.
For some, graduation seems inevitable. But for others, the ceremonious event truly marks an incredible journey—one that celebrates much more than a piece of paper, cap and gown.
That’s the case for Madeleine Tarin, a high school graduate from Eastvale, California.
The 19-year-old shared two photos on Twitter with the caption: “Yeah, that’s right. We made it TOGETHER.”
