Kayla Marie North used her graduation announcement as a platform to make a statement about the state of employment for recent grads. Her announcement read, “Kayla Marie North feels inclined to announce both her graduation from Utah Valley University and her catapult into unemployment… But none of that really matters. Send cash.”

North joined Fox and Friends this morning to talk about the announcement, which has been making waves online. She explained that it was simply meant as a joke, but people have been quick to criticize, calling her “entitled” and suggesting she should have majored in something more practical.  

North talked about her search for a job in digital media. “It’s kind of hard to get into an entry level job right now but doing freelance work kind of helps put your foot in the door. And I do have a lot of freelance work lined up, so I’m pretty excited about that.”
