In a video shared to Twitter, the “Up” rapper is treated to cheers from the students at I.S. 232 in the Bronx, as she walks through the auditorium. She later shared words of wisdom with the younger generation, encouraging them to work hard in school to achieve their dreams.

“We are thrilled to welcome Cardi B back home to I.S. 232 in the Bronx, and we are so grateful for her generous contribution to her alma mater,” New York City Schools Chancellor David Banks said, according to WABC.

“Cardi B’s commitment of $100,000 for the arts will help the school’s kids soar to their highest heights. Thank you, Cardi,” Banks added.

Cardi’s visit was part of New York’s Community Capacity Development organization.
