Danielle Fishel has successfully taken on more this year than just the comical role of Lindsay Lohan playing Elizabeth Taylor.

The upcoming Girl Meets World star, 31, announced on Wednesday that she is "super proud" to be done with college!

"I'm officially a college graduate," she wrote on her Tumblr, explaining that she decided to go back to school four years ago, despite initial hesitation.

"I was too afraid of being the old lady in class – of being whispered about and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations," she wrote. "After my 27th birthday, I made the decision to stop letting fear be a factor in fulfilling my dreams and living the life I wanted."

Although she admits some of her biggest fears of going back to school came true, in the end, she reached one of her "proudest achievements in life," explaining, "You will lose a lot of social time (shout outs to all my friends I've barely seen in the last four years!) and you will wonder why you decided to do this whole school thing again. But you will gain so much more in the long run."
