Vanessa Bryant sent her and Kobe Bryant's eldest daughter to college.
She shared a sweet snapshot of herself with her daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 2, on the campus of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where Natalia will spend the next several years.

In March 2021, Bryant shared a video of his daughter discovering that she joined USC on Instagram. She captioned the sweet moment with a note saying that he was "VERY happy" for his daughter and that Natalia's late father is "SO PROUD OF YOU."
“I'm SO PROUD OF YOU !! Their hard work and dedication paid off. You went through the most excruciating pain imaginable and made it. I wish Dad and Gigi were physically here to celebrate, but I know they are here in spirit. We love you so much! " she wrote.
