Seventeen Chelsea Fearce graduated from Charles Drew High School in Georgia as valedictorian, in spite of being homeless.
Fearce and her family lived in a number of homeless shelters, hotels and even out of their mother’s car before moving to the apartment, they now reside.
Just how was Fearce able to do this. She says while she lived in homeless shelters she would often use the light from a cell phone to study — achieving a 4.466 GPA.
She told sources: “I would just pray. My mom, whenever we’re in that situation, she always finds a way out of it. So I would just tell myself, tomorrow it will not be like this, so take your time, do what you got to do. Don’t give up. Do what you have to do right now so that you can have the future that you want. I just told myself to keep working, because the future will not be like this anymore.”
And now CrowdItForward — a crowd funding organization to help support do-gooders has decided to help fund the sister’s college expenses.
