American Graduating Doctor Marries Her Degree by Chartey(m): 11:36am On Apr 21
And the doctor and her degree lived happily ever after.

Angie Hamouie is getting married... to her medical degree.

The 27-year-old from Houston, Texas is graduating from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in June and she’s celebrating by throwing what she has dubbed a “graduwedding.”

There’s going to be a wedding-style dress, a first dance with the diploma and, of course, graduwedding cake. Hamouie even created a website on wedding website The Knot to announce her union with her M.D.

“This was such a big deal for her, because it was the culmination of three degrees and nine years of higher education,” Hamouie’s Knot page reads (in third-person, like so many wedding announcements). “Her match represented everything she had worked toward. Angie realized this graduation would only happen once in her life. She wondered, why is it that no one really celebrates their graduation? And if she threw a party, how could she convey that this party was a Big Deal?”

So, after her “ enmatchment,”
Hamouie planned a graduwedding. The party is set for May 13, and she’s invited friends and family to come join her on her big day.

“I didn’t think folks would take this party seriously because it was ‘only’ a graduation,” Hamouie told The Huffington Post. “I wanted to convey that this milestone is a huge deal for me, and I thought the best way to do that would be by pretending to marry my degree.”
Hamouie, who is going into Obstetrics & Gynecology, explained that, for women, it’s especially important to celebrate a successful career just as much as we celebrate engagements and weddings.

“I feel that for women especially, we feel pressure to choose one or the other: the career or the marriage. And when we really only celebrate weddings, it sends a loud message about what we’re expected to prioritize,” she said. “The message I ultimately want to send with my graduwedding is that getting an education is a huge feat, and it should be celebrated as such.”

We couldn’t agree more, Angie. Scroll below to see some truly amazing photos from Angie’s graduwedding photo shoot.

If she were a Nigerian..I'd probably conclude that

1.No one in her family has ever achieved something this great.
2.She wanted to show off to those who said she was a coconut head.
3.She bought all handouts,attended inconvienient classes,went to night class and did every life sapping things done in Nigerian Universities and so she was happy it wasn't all a waste



But wait undecided she is not a Nigerian
So I wish her Happy married life...
