Natalia Bryant, the eldest daughter of late, great NBA star Kobe Bryant, made her debut on TikTok earlier this week when she posted a photo and video montage of her first semester as a film student at the University of Southern California (USC).
Her mom, Vanessa, reacted to the video like any proud mother would. “I love this!!!!! It makes me so happy to see you enjoying your first year of college. I’m so proud of you @nataliabryant 1st semester complete. Keep Fighting On baby girl.”
In the montage, Bryant shares video clips and images of herself hanging out with friends, riding amusement park rollercoasters, walking on the beach, skipping down the sidewalk, screaming at a concert, eating at a restaurant, and saying hello to the USC Trojan mascot at a game. Also, is that Bryant dancing in front of a group of Stormtroopers? Talk about a great first semester.
Former WNBA star Swin Cash also commented on Bryant’s post. “This just warmed my whole heart!” she wrote. “Keep Pushin @nataliabryant enjoy.”
Actress Storm Reid (The Suicide Squad) added a quick note, too. She is a student at USC with Bryant. “WE DID ITTTTT,” she wrote. “WE DID,” Bryant replied, adding happy emojis.
Others who chimed in to congratulate Bryant on completing her first semester of college include former WNBA star Lisa Leslie, actress Savannah Chrisley, and Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Versha Sharma.
Here’s to your second semester, Natalia Bryant!
