While graduation season is typically and emotional and exciting part because of the speeches and celebrations, our favorite part is undoubtedly the graduation cap decorations. On the surface of the caps are notes that either serve as encouragement for the grads, words of wisdom to the world, or a moving homage to those that made the students’ success possible. It’s easily one of the most tear-jerking parts of commencement ceremonies.
For the last few years, Latina Rebels – the collective working to empower the Latino community – has encouraged grads to send in their powerful messages. This year, was no different. Under the #LatinxGradCaps hashtag, Latina Rebels asked students to share snaps of their caps. Below, check out some we found through the hashtag and that were sent to us.
