St. Scholastica held their commencement ceremony on Sunday. There were 889 candidates for graduation, which includes students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Among the students receiving their diploma was Nafisa Ibrahim, a first generation college student.

She wants to be a chemistry professor, and fittingly enough she says her time tutoring students was her best memory while at St. Scholastica.

"When I would explain something to a student, and then they would get it, so like that aha moment, that I was able to basically put in a language that they would understand, which science is all about being able to communicate your science. I thought that was like the most profound moment in my life is like being able to educate students," said Ibrahim. 

Ibrahim is going to be pursuing her PhD in chemistry.
