Growing up, we are constantly told that education is key to having a successful future. There are more educated people out there than we think, and some famous people are highly educated too! We often forget that famous people can have roots in academics. Most of them graduated from high school at some point, and others might have even gone off to college before making it big. Some of the more fairytale-sounding stories involve dropping out of college and moving to Hollywood or New York to make it big—which is exactly what Lady Gaga did! She was accepted into NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, but later dropped out to pursue her music career. But just because she dropped out, it doesn’t make her any less brilliant. There are tons of celebrities out there with amazing brains that we just don’t know about.
