A California high school girl’s senior quote went viral, garnering virtual applause from people throughout Twitter and Tumblr.
Rafika Alami, a 17-year-old student at Summit High School, included a particularly confident quote alongside her senior photo.
“Only reason I wear this is to give you females a chance,” Alami wrote. The teen said she did it just to be funny, and wasn’t expecting the type of reaction she got when the photo began to go viral.
“I’m getting a lot of ‘slay’ and ‘G.O.A.T’ comments [ed.: ‘Greatest Of All Time’],” Alami told Buzzfeed. “There are a very small handful of people saying I’m putting girls down but I’m really not.”
Though she said there have been “racist trolls” that have responded negatively to her photo, Alami said the vast majority of people have reacted positively, applauding her for her witty approach and self confidence.
