Evans, who has made numerous headlines for her various arrests since she first appeared in MTV’s 16 and Pregnant in 2010, earned her degree in medical assisting. “I can work in basically any doctor’s office, urgent care, hospital, basically anywhere medical,” the reality star told Us Weekly of her degree last month during a press tour for the new season of Teen Mom 2. She said she eventually wants to be a surgical tech.

The mom of Jace, 5, and Kaiser, nearly 13 months, also recognized her loved ones for their support on Friday.

“Thanks to my family for being here as my biggest support and able to push me through it !!!” she tweeted along with a family photo of fiancé Nathan Griffith holding their son, Kaiser, and a smiling Jace, who is from a previous relationship, at her graduation.

Evans also acknowledged her mom, Barbara, who was present at the ceremony. “And of course thanks to my mother for always motivating me to be independent,” she tweeted, “and to chase my goals no matter what obstacles may come up.”

The two have long had a contentious relationship, even before Evans gave up custody of Jace to her mom in 2010. (She is now trying to regain custody.) Teen Mom 2 has documented many of their screaming matches, but the new college graduate told Us that things have been better lately between the two.

“We’ve just been working together and we’ve been on good terms lately and especially because she sees that I’m just trying to get myself prepared for the future,” she said.
