America Ferrera Is Now Graduating College — Ten Years After Starting!

Time to trade in your traveling pants for a traveling cap and gown.

Ugly Betty star America Ferrerra is about to graduate from USC, ten years after she initially enrolled, according to Us Weekly.

The 29-year-old actress has earned a bachelor's degree in international relations and will accept her diploma on May 17.

On May 14, she happily tweeted:

America says she was initially torn between whether to act, or whether to pursue her education and improve the world.

"I always wanted to go to college and get my education, although I always wanted to be an actor," she said last year. "I never knew how those two things would work with each other, and this was revealed to me in my first year of college here."

America is known for the film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the title role in ABC's Ugly Betty. She appeared in the 2012 film End of Watch and reprises her voice role in next year's How to Train Your Dragon 2.

So she's been keeping busy with Hollywood roles and with studying? We need a nap just thinking about it all.
