Zendaya recently walked across the stage and graduated from high school, but that’s not the last of her education! During an interview with Access Hollywood, the multi-talented star opened up about finishing high school and going to college.
“I definitely want to go to college. [But] I think I’d rather wait, because careers go any kind of way. So, I’d rather keep going while I can and hopefully make enough money to buy the college I want to go to,” she joked.
Even though she’s a pro at the entertainment industry, she says that she wants to expand her knowledge.
“Honestly, I just want to be able to go to school because I want to learn. This is something I’m passionate about and probably has nothing to do with the arts at all — just something different because I really want to get that knowledge. It’s definitely gonna happen, just not this very second.”
She says that even though she considered getting a GED and eschewing high school, she was able to get her diploma thanks to her amazing support system.
“I’ve been working so hard at school and, literally, for the past however many years that I’ve been doing this business and school at the same time, it is so hard. Thankfully, I have teacher parents and an amazing set teacher and an amazing teacher at my school, and collectively they all kept motivating me and pushing me.”
We’re definitely so proud of her! Even though she may not be taking the route of Dylan Sprouseand Cole Sprouse and pursuing higher education straightaway, we think it’s so amazing that she wants to go back to school when she has the free time and her schedule isn’t so crazy-busy.
