“The time has finally come,” Raheel said in an Instagram video on Monday (December 6). “I’ve made it through the four years at Temple, graduating with a 3.5 GPA. I’m sure you all remember this video of me asking Lil Uzi Vert at the mall if he could help pay for my college tuition.
“I come from a big family and was raised by a single, widowed mother. Finances were always a struggle. After my dad passed away, we had to live paycheck to paycheck.”
Raheel is looking for Uzi to attend the January 26 graduation and then even go out to dinner with him and his family and maybe stay for a night of partying to celebrate around the Temple campus.
“You may not know this, Uzi, but the day that we met at King of Prussia mall on August 22nd, 2019, I was not in a good place mentally,” Raheel added. “But our one-minute interaction changed my life for the better. You have given me a sense of hope and optimism.”
Uzi is yet to respond to Raheel’s invitation on social media.
