Beyonce recently disclosed that she did not get college experience like other kids but her parents taught her the value of education.
According to her, she became who she is today because her father and mother always reminded her of the importance of investing in one’s self.
She added that she had to trust that she was ready for the next level since that was the only way for her to succeed.
“I did not get to experience college like some of you, or the campus parties that left you struggling the next day in class, although that could have been fun. But my parents did teach me the value of education, how to be authentic in my actions, and how to celebrate individuality and the importance of investing in myself.”
On building her company as a black woman, “There was a pivotal turning point in my life when I chose to build my own company many years ago. I had to trust that I was ready and that my parents and mentors provided me with the tools I needed to be successful, but that was terrifying.”

Through her mother, Beyoncé is a descendant of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Beyoncé attended St. Mary’s Montessori School in Houston, where she enrolled in dance classes. Her singing talent was discovered when dance instructor Darlette Johnson began humming a song and she finished it, able to hit the high-pitched notes.
