Terri Patterson in Chicago had a priceless reaction when she unwrapped a Christmas present that contained a note saying, “I am paying off your school balance!”
Apparently, the 24-year-old Roosevelt University student told her sister, Tierra Patterson, that she was taking a semester off after learning her school wouldn’t cover her $7,000 tuition. But her big sister wasn’t going to let money stop her from going to school.
Tierra posted a video clip on Twitter of Terri completely shocked and crying tears of joy as she unboxed her gift. “No more worries. You will finish your program strong! I got you forever,” she captioned post. Tierra is currently in grad school earning a Ph.D. at Howard University and Terri will continue pursuing her degree in criminal justice.
