Among the increasing problem of homelessness among students in the US, bright news has come our way from Tennessee, United States. A high school student earned $3 million in scholarships after being a topper at his high school. The phenomenal thing is that he achieved all this amidst the severe struggle of being homeless.
Being an inspiration to students all over the world, Tupac Mosley scored the highest marks in his high school and received scholarships from over 40 colleges for his future graduation studies. Tupac received a total of $3 million in 50 scholarships, and he can now join his dream college without worrying about education loans.
On asked about being homeless, Tupac told that after his father passed, they faced an acute shortage of money and could not pay bills. They were evicted from their house in February this year. Tupac and his family changed homes frequently before founding their stay at For the Kingdom.
For the Kingdom is a non-profit organization allowing homeless people to camp and stay on their land. Mosley said that the director of the school really came forward for him and helped him continue at the college. The acts of kindness supported Tupac through and through and he scored a brilliant 4.3 pointer to take the spot of Valedictorian at the local High school.
Tupac says he was shocked and elated when he achieved his goal of being a valedictorian and giving a graduation speech to all students. He also added that it was astonishing to see the total scholarship offers he received from different schools. He is very excited about his education ahead.
On his graduation speech last Sunday, he addressed all the students and told them to take his story as an inspiration that nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself. He exclaimed that no circumstances can be the hindrance to the path of achieving your goals if you stay determined.
Tupac is very grateful to the principal and teachers of his school. He thanked them during his speech for believing in him. While talking to reporters, Tupac said with enthusiasm that he wanted to prove his worth to them and make them proud. He added that he knew their investments were worth it and he showed them that everything they put on the line was worth $3 million and counting.
Tupac maintained his GPA while moving from house to house and supporting his family emotionally and physically. He is a great manager and his teachers at Raleigh Egypt High School believe that he will have a great future in whichever road he takes.
Tupac Mosley plans to attend Tennessee State University and pursue a major in electrical engineering starting this fall. He is preparing to move to a permanent house with his family after being homeless for a long time. His story is a motivation to all of us that we can fight any circumstances and change the path of our lives with hard work and persistence.
