Looks like Maci Bookout is defying all the odds! This Teen Mom 2 star may have gotten pregnant at the tender age of sixteen going on seventeen, but fear not friends. Girlfriend isn't about to become a statistic! She has once again proven that teen parenthood won't hold her back.

You guessed it, Maci is just months away from becoming a college graduate— with not just one, but two degrees! This gal is currently enrolled at Chattanooga State Community College, and is getting a major in Media Technology and a minor in Creative Writing.

"It's like a broad spectrum, you learn how to produce, you learn how to host, you learn how to work the cameras, audio, pretty much everything," Maci explained during a Teen Mom After Show. "With creative writing, it's like I'm really just doing that because writing's a hobby. It's much more enjoyable, I'm actually interested in what I'm doing."

Maci's passion for writing is pretty obvious (we're loving her new blog!), and we can't wait to see where life takes her once she graduates. And speaking of graduation, when exactly is this gal done with school?

"i take my finals tomorrow," Maci tweeted on May 1. "Then I’m one semester away from graduation."

Wow, this starlet has come so far. Take it to the comments and congratulate Maci on her achievement — she's truly a role model for teen mothers and fathers across the USA!
