USC definitely had rich ties with Kobe. Bryant reportedly visited the campus occasionally where he would attend games, speak at classes and just show his presence. He’s also hired a handful of USC alumni to work at his company. Kobe has also been spotted a number of times rocking USC gear wherever he goes—talk about manifesting his daughter’s future school. It’s just heartwarming to watch and remember.
Kobe Bryant briefly went to summer school at UCLA after his rookie season with the Lakers but he quickly adopted USC as his school. He would occasionally attend games, speak at classes and hired USC film students at his company. Now his oldest Natalia will be going to USC. https://t.co/MVaglMztG8 pic.twitter.com/LJ0M26MQH4

The Bryants have been admirable to follow (through social media) over the past couple of months. Based on Vanessa's updates via Instagram, the family seems to be holding up well.
Vanessa in particular posted a bunch of wonderful photos on Tuesday of how the family is celebrating the recent success of Natalia. Vanessa and her family celebrated by customizing a paid of USC themed shoes which she probably gifted for Natalia.
“Tears of joy. I’m so happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so proud of you. I am so proud of you!! Your hard work and dedication was so worth it. You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded,” said Vanessa via Instagram post.”I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much!” added Vanessa.
Here’s to Natalia making it to USC!
