Homeless 17-year-old graduates high school as valedictorian

 
For most of her high school years, 17-year-old Chelsea Fearce and her family have bounced around homeless shelters, or lived in a car if they had one. Today, she graduated as valedictorian of her class from Charles Drew High School in Georgia. Her GPA is 4.466. Chelsea, studying by the light of a cell phone after shelter lights were turned off, also managed to enroll in some college classes during high school. She'll start as a junior at Spelman College next year, studying biology. "Don't give up," she said at her graduation ceremony, "Do what you have to do right now so that you can have the future that you want." [Source]
