The ongoing pandemic has caused life as we know it to be completely disrupted! Not only are we cooped up inside, but significant milestones such as high school graduations have been canceled. Technology has come to the rescue of high school students, and virtual graduations are now taking place.
TikTok recently celebrated the graduating class of 2020 through a special Livestream series
The leading #TikTokGraduation event was set for 16th May, while the mini-series was held on Thursday and Friday.
TikTok teamed up with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, the LeBron James Foundation, XQ Institute to provide a live stream ceremony. Renowned celebrities including, Bad Bunny, LeBron James, the Jonas Brothers, Barack, and Michelle Obama, Pharell Williams, and Malala Yousoufzai were live sharing their wisdom and performing for the students.
