Crystal Westbrooks Graduates From Texas Southern University

We all know why India Love is trending today. Hint: Rhymes with “lexfape.”

But, India isn’t the only person in the Westbrooks family making headlines. Love’s sister Crystal is toasting to education and filming her academic achievements instead of freaky ones…

Blake, I spent the last 4 years of my life in Houston Texas at Texas Southern University. Mom and dad didn't make me, I could've never went like our other brother and sisters. I went because I wasn't done learning yet and to set an example for you and our nieces and nephews. And we are honestly influenced by our friends around us, God blessed me with close girlfriends that alll were going to college and I was too. But it wasn't all easy, some of the highest influential artist rapped about how cool it was to be a college drop out and at times I thought I should drop out because of these songs. They rapped about how even though they didn't finish college they still became successful and that was convincing. But my goal for going wasn't to be successful, it was to show the younger kids in our family how cool it was to get a higher education, that knowledge is one things others can't take away from you. And as the radio continues to play songs like that I hope you look to me for your role model and remember you're more powerful with knowledge. Filming for the reality show I was flown home from TX to CA everyyy weekend for 3 months so I could be included in the season. It would have been much easier to just have stopped going to school for a semester and some even said I shouldn't go to college since I "made it" on tv. But I didn't stop, I did my homework on that 3.5 hour plane ride and made it work because I was dedicated. Before granny passed away she alwaysss told me how proud she was of me and at night when I got home sick because all our sisters were on snap chat going out and having fun while I was lonely in my dorm room I just thought about making her proud and I know I have put a smile on her face. Mom and dad have been there with me everyyy step of the way. Wheneverrr I needed anything dad did it without hesitation. I could NOT have did it without him. Long story short… Lol ummm this is for you Blake, a proud sister passing you the baton. I graduated for you, Blake, and all of our 9 nieces and nephews, and our parents. To set a good example and make y'all proud #goTigers
