The Django Unchained beauty, who studied anthropology and sociology at George Washington University, graduated in 1998 and over the weekend (18-19May13) she returned to the school to pick up her second diploma as her parents proudly looked on.

A beaming Washington later addressed members of the graduating class during the commencement speech, telling the crowd of students, “I’m here today to remind each of you that you are the heroes of your own story. Your life is your story, and the journey ahead of you is to fulfill your own purpose and potential.”

Congratulating the actress on her great achievement, Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Washington’s hit U.S. Tv show Scandal, took to Twitter.com and added, “So proud of you, Dr. Washington!!”
