Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter is now 18 years old and started going to university last year. She took a decision in this direction. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have six children, Maddox Chivan (22), Zahara Marley, Shiloh Nouvelle (17), Pax Tien (19) and twins Knox Leon and Vivian Marshline (15).
She has adopted three children, including Zahara, whom she adopted from Ethiopia. Last year, Jolie dropped her daughter off at school in Atlanta and made headlines for getting emotional when they parted ways.
In a video released by Dr. Daryl Holloman, the university’s vice president for student affairs, the Oscar-winning actress told the school’s president, Dr. Helene Gale, how she felt seeing her daughter off. When Jolie was asked how she felt off camera, she replied, “I’m going to start crying.”
She also said she was thrilled to be ‘Spelman’s mom’. Now, in a video released by Essence, 18-year-old Zahara Spelman appears to have made a decision about her life at College.
In the video, Zahara is seen dancing on stage during her initiation into Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) sorority, historically the first African-American college sorority. “Ivy’s up The first Black sorority gained a very familiar face as a member,” the magazine wrote in the caption of its Instagram post.
“Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Zahra Marley Jolie Pitt has been accepted into Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority at Spelman College! Congratulations!” the caption continues.
Other celebrities who have been part of the AKA sorority include women such as director Ava DuVernay, Vice President Kamala Harris, civil rights icon Rosa Parks, author Toni Morrison, journalist Robin Roberts and actress Jada Pinkett-Smith. As part of the ceremony, Zahraa is seen shouting out her name and where she is from.
She then says she is an AKA Sister and seventh in line for new initiation into the sisterhood. “We can’t wait to see you and all you do in the name of sisterhood, scholarship and service to all humanity!” she wrote. Essence wrote in the caption. In the comments section, people were emotional about Zahraa’s pledge to join a sorority.
They appreciated that she was in touch with her roots and race despite being raised by white parents. One person wrote This girl has been raised to connect with her roots as much as possible. Very commendable.”
“I want to give a shout out to white parents who are making sure that black children have a cultural experience. Angelina has always been a humanitarian, so it makes sense that her children continue to serve,” wrote another commenter. This is so heartwarming. We wish Zahraa all the best in her college life!
