Chelesa Fearce Overcomes Homelessness; Will Start College as a Junior at Spelman
Georgia teen Chelsea Fearce spent most of her high school career homeless, oftentimes living out of her mother’s car.
But Fearce persevered.
She achieved a 4.466 GPA, took all college courses during her senior year, will graduate as her high school’s valedictorian, and will start as a junior at Spelman this fall.
“I just told myself to keep working, because the future will not be like this anymore,” Fearce said. “You’re worried about your home life and then worried at school. Worry about being a little hungry sometimes, go hungry sometimes. You just have to deal with is. You eat what you can, when you can.”
“Don’t give up. Do what you have to do right now so that you can have the future that you want,” Fearce said.
We are so proud of Chelesa. Her story proves that with self-confidence and determination, the sky is truly the limit!
