It’s hard to believe it’s been almost four years since the world lost actor Paul Walker. He left behind a legacy of some of our most-favorite films, several charity endeavors, and — perhaps most importantly — his daughter Meadow. And Meadow Walker returned to Instagram after a year-long hiatus — and goodness she has grown!
Meadow last posted in July of 2016 with a message promoting The Paul Walker Foundation, and an incredibly sweet pic of her and her dad. In case you don’t know, The Paul Walker Foundation was created after Walker’s death to “serve as an enduring light of Paul’s unique spirit, far reaching goals, and spontaneous goodwill.” It has a special emphasis on keeping our oceans clean and healthy for future generations, and Meadow is deeply involved in its mission.
Here was that adorable snap from a year ago:
And here Meadow is now, at 18 years old in her most recent post.
She’s SO grown up.
Aside from carrying on her father’s charitable legacy, Meadow is also staying close to his Fast and the Furious family. She’s posted photos of herself with Vin Diesel and Elsa Patacky, and actor Tyrese Gibson has told People.com that, “She’s really in a great space. She’s really focused on her education and just spending a lot of quality time with her friends. That brings her a lot of joy.”
We are so incredibly happy to see Meadow thriving. We’re 100% certain that dad Paul would be so proud of her and all she has already accomplished (how many 18 year olds can say they rear up a major charity organization?!).
We’re rooting for you Meadow!
