Taylor Swift congratulated her close friend Zendaya on graduating from high school on Thursday. The Disney actress walked the stage with hundreds of other graduating seniors from Oak Park High School in California to receive her diploma. “I’M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE. @Zendaya #ProudOfYou,” tweeted Swift, along with a photo she shared of the actress wearing a gold graduation cap-and-gown as she stood amongst the other graduates.

Shortly after receiving her diploma, Zendaya wrote on Twitter, “IM AN OFFICIAL GRADUATE YALL!!!” She also shared a photo on Instagram of herself in cap-and-gown, captioning it with an encouraging message to everyone who graduated with her. “Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but to the soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving… don’t take that for granted,” wrote Zendaya, adding, “To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do it! (if I can get through it then anyone can) it’s a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold.”

As it turns out, Zendaya wasn’t the only celebrity to graduate from that high school on Thursday. Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas also walked the stage with Zendaya. Douglas also shared a post-graduate selfie on her Instagram page, writing, “Not gonna lie. It was tough to balance school and gym… but I did it! Know when u set ur mind to achieve something u can do it.”
