The Boy Meets World star has been taking classes for four years, and on Wednesday (19Dec12) she took to her Tumblr.com blog to inform fans she had completed her final examinations.
In a post, she writes, “I am officially a college graduate! I took my last two undergraduate finals today and I am so happy, relieved, and proud. Yeah, I’m super proud of myself.
“I went back to school 4 years ago at 27 years old. I had attempted to go a couple times before then, even going so far as to take my placement exams and sign up for classes, but I could never follow through and actually go. I was too afraid of being the old lady in class, of being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations.
“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 with a little encouragement from friends and family, I enrolled. And I went. I went every day and took copious notes and studied my little old lady heart out.”
Fishel reveals she became a maths tutor after excelling in the subject, and even met her fiance through the classes.
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 fiance.”
