A record 32 African-American women are set to graduate from West Point next week, the most ever in the military institution’s 217-year history.
“My hope when young Black girls see these photos is that they understand that regardless of what life presents you, you have the ability and fortitude to be a force to be reckoned with,” Cadet Tiffany Welch-Baker says about her upcoming graduation 🇺🇸🙌🏽🇺🇸
This year's class includes the highest number of female Hispanic graduates, along with graduating their 5,000th female cadets. According to the school, 10% of the student population is black and about 20% are women.
Congrats to all these smart and inspiring women.
