I was scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook when I came across the most inspiring story. It was the story of 17-year old Eboni Boykin who went from being homeless (and attending over 10 different schools in her short lifetime) to a full scholarship at Columbia University.

Columbia University is an Ivy League school.

Anything is possible when you keep your eyes on the prize.
