UPDATE (August 13, 2018, 9:25 a.m.): Cynthia is officially an emptynester! The model/designer bid her daughter a bittersweet goodbye when she dropped her off at college over the weekend. Ahead of the big moment, the Atlanta mom was feeling pensive about this new chapter, writing on Instagram, "I just want her to be happy. When she is happy, my world is a better place."
Later, when she did eventually find her way at Howard University for Noelle to start her college career, she added, "You know it’s real when it hurts. Miss her already."
We're sending major congrats to the RHOA daughter!
The original story continues below.
Noelle Robinson just wants everyone to know they should "trust the process" because it brought her to one of the most prestigious universities in the country. That's right, this The Real Housewives of Atlanta kid is on her way to Howard University, or as she recently put it, she's now "officially a Howard Bison."
And you can bet that her mama, Cynthia Bailey, is very proud of her daughter's accomplishment (and who could blame her?) as she looks to begin her next chapter as a member of the class of '22. Cynthia shared on Instagram, "Going to miss her. #collegebound #proudmamabear." (More on what's next for Cynthia and Noelle in the video, above.)
Cynthia spoke to The Daily Dish back in December about her little girl's future. "She still loves modeling. She still loves acting. She's trying to figure out her life. She wants to find her own way. She's 18 now, and I told her, 'Look, take your time, and just figure it out. But if you're not out in six months, you're gonna have to start paying rent,'" Cynthia said at the time. "I have plans for Noelle's room."
