Cardi B Donated Money To Her Old Middle School

The rapper dropped some words of wisdom to the students.

Cardi B went back to her roots and made an appearance at I.S. 232, her old middle school from the 6th to the 8th grade in Bronx, New York. The 29-year-old also donated $100,000.

According to News 12 Bronx, Schools Chancellor David Banks was with her and the appearance was a partnership tour across New York City with Community Capacity Development, an non-profit organization fighting to eradicate systemic challenges in marginalized communities of color.

The organization’s founder K. Bain told Fox 5 New York. “I think a lot of times young people are attracted to survival. When you don’t have employment opportunities, when you don’t have adequate resources in education, when you see nothing but closed doors, crime and violence becomes an option. Having someone like Cardi come back and say I want to be in human justice work – it’s a real inspiration.”
