She recently became a graduate of Fordham University and has shared some of her unedited graduation photos.
Photographs hold immense significance in our lives as they capture fleeting moments, preserving them for eternity. They serve as visual time capsules, allowing us to revisit cherished memories and emotions long after the moments have passed. Julia Leahy—who goes by @morepestoplease on TikTok— celebrated her graduation with some exciting pictures.
The video also shows how the actual pictures can be very different from what one expected in a photo shoot. Leahy became a graduate of Fordham University and has shared some of the unedited graduation photos. She shared how this was “very exciting” and a “bit shocking" and that she is still eating mac and cheese for dinner. However, she said that her pictures captured by Autumn Chapman are “not the worst” and received “honorable mention.”
She says about one of the pictures, "Don't my hand look like doll hands?" In another picture, she accidentally groped her friend. While in other pictures, she is seen getting sprayed with a champagne stream in her eyes. In the last picture, we see Leahy making a funny face. She also revealed how her mother had asked her to mischievously stop sticking her tongue out as it is "unattractive." "And I was like, ‘Okay, I don’t know what you mean,’” Leahy said.
This video has gone viral as it received 5 million views and people absolutely loved these pictures. @delaney commented, "The last one is itching to tell me a riddle." @JessicaBlevins shared, "Get ready. When I got my diploma and had the most atrocious photos they no joke emailed me for years saying 'You can still buy these wonderful memories.'" @lillygirl wrote, "Last one had me giggling in my bed at 3 am."
In another story about reaching the graduation milestone, Nobel Haskell met with a car accident in June 2021and and was rendered paralyzed. He never imagined he would ever be proudly walking to receive his high school diploma. Haskell was driving home from a "boy's trip" to Branson, Missouri, in late June with some friends when his car was struck in Russell, Kansas, per 9News.

Noble, a cross country athlete, broke his neck in a car accident in June of 2021. He was determined to run again.

Though he was hospitalized and under intensive care, his journey back to recovery began with a single step, and the former cross-country athlete was determined to get better. Consistent physiotherapy and his willpower came to fruition when he walked to the stage to receive his diploma as shown in a now-viral video. Twitter account @GoodNewsCorrespondent shared this video where Haskell was awarded ‘Outstanding Student of the Year’ at the ceremony. In the video, he can be seen walking toward the stage with the help of a cane. He is congratulated by an educator who hands him the diploma and Haskell graciously says, "Thank you so much," while holding the certificate close to his chest.
He poses for the camera and slowly walks back as the crowd cheers for him. The heartwarming clip truly showcases an example of someone who ardently pursued their journey to reclaim what was lost, and his family and loved ones could not be happier. Haskell's mom, Krisi Hantke, said this was a miracle, as nobody thought he could walk again soon.
