Eboni Boykin homeless to full scholarship from Columbia University
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.
Eboni’s mom said, “Every opportunity I got we would catch a bus and go to the big pretty neighborhoods with the big houses and I would let her see that … this is what you could have if you work hard”.
