Twitter is soooo boring.
Meet Dawn Loggins, an 18-year-old who went from a homeless dropout to a full ride at Harvard.
The journey for the 18-year-old began last summer when her mother and stepfather abandoned her. They dropped her off at a prestigious six-week summer school program and just never came back.
Loggins figured all she could do was go home to Shelby, N.C., for her senior year at Burns High School. Friends took mercy, letting her sleep on their couches. She hit the books hard, even enrolling in advanced placement classes. And she took a job at school as a janitor, cleaning before and after class.
“I’ve known I wanted to go to college ever since I was like 12,” she told The Daily. “I just made a decision to myself that I was not going to live like my family.”
