A Woman Whose Real Name Is Marijuana Pepsi Just Got Her Doctorate
Here’s EXHIBIT A that no matter what kind of terrible name your parents gave you, you can overcome it if you’re dedicated enough.
There’s a 46-year-old woman from Pecatonica, Illinois whose real name is . . . Marijuana Pepsi. Well, Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck, if you want to include her last name too.
Her mother told her she picked the name because it would, quote, “take her around the world.” Marijuana’s two sisters got the names Kimberly and Robin, by the way.
Well . . . Marijuana Pepsi just proved that one of the world’s worst names can’t hold you down. Because she just earned her Ph.D. in higher education leadership from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
And as she says now, quote, “I’m going to be called Dr. Marijuana Pepsi.”
