Georgia Teenager Overcomes Homelessness to Become Valedictorian
Fearce, a senior at Charles Drew High School in Riverdale, Ga., spent most of her high school career living in shelters, the occasional hotel, short-term rented apartments and sometimes the family car -- when the family had one -- with her mother and three siblings.
Regardless of where she was living, Fearce found a way to study. She recalled using a cellphone light in shelters to get her homework done.
On Saturday, Fearce's 18-year-old sister will graduate as salutatorian from a different high school.
Amazing! Simply proves the old adage...will and determination to work hard can open up unlimited possibilities regardless of the obstacles.
