The day of one’s graduation is one of the most memorable days of a person’s life. Everyone remembers walking up to the stage and being conferred the degree in the presence of their family and friends. However, for a US woman, her graduation ceremony became special even if it took place at a hospital room. The reason behind this is really sweet and heartwarming.

Jada Sayles from New Orleans, Louisiana, graduated from Dillard University. She was supposed to be on stage to collect her graduation degree on May 14, but she went into labour a day before her graduation ceremony. She texted her college president Walter M. Kimbrough. What happened next is really heartwarming. The college president arranged for her graduation ceremony to be held in her hospital room. Jada Sayles took to Twitter to post photos from her graduation ceremony and also photos with her newborn baby. Since being posted on May 16, the tweet has got more than 1.49 lakh likes.
