A future physician who ran out of ideas on how to pay his school fees but tweeted rapper Nicki Minaj got a favourable answer and just graduated, a report in Medscape Medical News says.
Then funding for one of his scholarships disappeared. He was suddenly stuck with a $1172.95 bill that he didn’t know how to pay.
Cook figured he might as well try. He tweeted back to Minaj, who is well known for interacting with her fans on social media, and told her he had a tuition bill he couldn’t pay. “Send me ur info. I’ll pay it,” Minaj responded.
He shared the necessary information with her, and a few days later, his outstanding balance was $0. Minaj has paid thousands of dollars in tuition bills for fans who have contacted her on social media.
On December 8, 2020 — Minaj’s birthday, of all days — Cook graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology, minors in chemistry and psychology, and a 4.0 grade point average.
