"Yeah, I'm super proud of myself :)" she said.

As well she should be. Fishel returned to college at age 27, noting that she tried to do so several times but "could never follow through and actually go."

"I was too afraid of being the old lady in class, being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations," she says.

"After my 27th birthday, I made the decision to stop letting fear be a factor in fulfilling my dreams, so with a little encouragement from friends and family, I enrolled. And I went."

Now she's a college grad - and rocking a huge engagement ring (and a beer) like a BOSS in the photo above. So who's the lucky guy who put a ring on it?

"I persevered and sometimes I wasn't the oldest person in class, some of the whisperers became good friends, and I did so well in math, I even became a tutor," she adds.

"And that is how I met my fiancé. :)"

Interesting! And congratulations!

As you've likely heard, Fishel is now shooting a pilot for Disney Channel's Girl Meets World, which will reunite her with Ben Savage as Topanga and Cory Matthews.

More than a decade after the end of Boy Meets World, the show will be told from the perspective of Cory and Topanga's teenage daughter, Riley.
