(sic)" Take a look. 

Just days before, Angelina shared a picture of Zahara and her new batchmates, while penning a heartfelt note about her daughter's admission. "Zahara with her Spelman sisters! Congratulations to all new students starting this year. A very special place and an honour to have a family member as a new Spelman girl. #spelman #spelmancollege #spelmansisters #HBCU," she mentioned.

It’s an exciting and beautiful time to find her own way and pursue her interests. I’m so proud. … Where does the time go, right? They grow up too fast. It brings a tear to the eye.”Apart from Zahara, Jolie and Pitt also share Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Shiloh,  16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 14.
