Madonna's Daughter Lourdes Reflects on Graduating From High School

Madonna's little girl is all grown up.

Lourdes Leon is a soon-to-be graduate of LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City, an accomplishment on which she reflects in a blog post on their Material Girl Collection website.

"Looking back on the past four years of high school means looking back on unfortunate outfits I wore confidently to school (good for me)," she wrote. "Oh how I wish I could go back in time and urge my 14 year old self NOT to wear black rhinestone studded t-shirts with bloody skulls on them, purchased from really 'hip”' stores (wtf is hip anyways). I like to reassure myself though, that I had to go through that awkward time of 'trying stuff out' to figure out what I liked wearing best."

Even now, she added, she's not sure whether she has a "defined style," but said that she's grateful to have gone to a school that "gave me the confidence and the yolo [you only live once] spirit I needed to successfully look like a clown."

"I definitely don’t look back on High School with any bitterness. Even the times when cockroaches crawled out of my locker, or when trying to concentrate during an exam next to a room full of people rehearsing for show choir (ha), or walking up 7 flights of stairs on a Monday, or the lunchroom flash mobs. You know, standard things," she wrote. "I know that I was lucky enough to go to a truly exceptional High School that produces high quality shows and actually teaches you the craft of what you’re studying."

Looking ahead to her freshman year of college, Lourdes, 17, wrote that she'll miss her friends and the drama department, but she's excited for them all to move forward. (For Lourdes, new designs will arrive in Macy's come fall.) She has not said which college she'll attend.

"It’s really beautiful to be able to see all of the people I dearly love and care for, people that I grew up with for four years, go on and pursue their passions, whatever they may be, and find their place," she wrote.
