Natalia Bryant may have a difficult choice ahead of her. The daughter of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant has been considering colleges like New York University and the University of Southern California, and has now been accepted into the University of Oregon.
Vanessa shared the exciting news on her Instagram story Wednesday, along with a screenshot of Natalia’s acceptance letter offering her a spot in the University of Oregon class of 2025. “Congratulations @NataliaBryant,” the proud mother wrote .
The news comes a month after Vanessa revealed that NYU was one of Natalia’s best options. However, he was quick to add that he would prefer Natalia to stay closer to home in California.
“I’ll do my best to keep her in Cali like I kept her dad here 😂😋 #CaliGirlForever ☀️🌴,” Vanessa wrote.
It has been an exciting time for Natalia, who signed with IMG Models earlier this week.
“I have always been interested in fashion from a very young age. I love the industry and since I can remember I wanted to model,” Natalia said in a statement. “There is a lot to learn, but I feel like this is a great opportunity to learn and express myself creatively.”
Natalia’s proud mom Vanessa quickly shared the post on her own account, writing, “@nataliabryant I’m so happy for you! I love you Nani! 😘❤️ 2/8”.
