Boy Meets World Star Danielle Fishel Graduates College Despite Fear

When Boy Meets World ended in 2000, Danielle Fishel was 19, and had already missed out on a year of college which meant it took her a long time to pluck up the courage to go. Via her tumblr blog today, she's revealed that she is now a very proud college graduate with a degree in Psychology, from the California State University. It certainly wasn't an easy ride for her, and she explains why. 

"I was too afraid" she said, "of being the old lady in class, of being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations." However, she adds: "After my 27th birthday, I made the decision to stop letting fear be a factor in fulfilling my dreams and living the life I wanted, so... I enrolled." Although her fears came true- she was the oldest, whispered about and not so hot at math, she adds: "I persevered and sometimes I wasn't the oldest person in class, some of the whisperers became good friends, and I did so well in math, I even became a tutor. And that is how I met my fiancé. :)" Alls well that ends well.

She's not the only celebrity to head back to college a little later in life- James Franco also headed to college in 2008 to complete a degree in English at Columbia University. In 2002 Steven Spielberg got his degree at the age of 55, ironically, in Film- like he needed it. Queen guitarist Brian May even managed to get himself a PhD in physics- genius! A little less impressively, this year Drake managed to graduate from highschool, which is just as worthy of celebration. Anyway, congrats to Danielle! And we're looking forward to her return as Topanga in the Boy Meets World spinoff, 'Girl Meets World', currently in production.
