The singer shared a photo on Instagram of herself wearing her regalia with her mother by her side.

“If I’m a reflection of you, I can always be proud of what I see! Momma, I Love You!! Thank you for standing for me. My Mom believed that because I loved children & I constantly signed my name that I would be a pediatrician!” Monica wrote.

“This is as close as I’ve come to being Dr.Monica LOL… I’m happy it was for the good I’ve done outside of music that I received this honor…”

This news comes on the heels of Queen Latifah being slated to receive the W.E.B. Du Bois medal from Harvard University for her contributions to black history and culture.
