An 18-year-old old boy identified as Griffin Furlong has deferred all odds as he sprinted towards success in his university.
Griffin beat his colleagues to become the top graduate in his school despite living in the streets.
Griffin lost his precious mother to cancer which rendered him homeless through out his youth age in Florida, USA.
He never thought of achieving this feat giving his situation.
Upon all the constraints, he was able to score 4.65 grade points which attracted many people to start doing fundraising for him so that he can be able to pay his tuition fees.
Griffin recounted his blessings “people from California are contacting me, people from Hawaii, it’s truly been weird”.
In just few days after the fundraising event was started they were able to raise more than $30,000 to help him pay for his college education.
The love he has received from colleagues and well wishers, he claim has humbled him but mainly focusing his attention in the future.
He later enrolled at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, to study civil engineering.
Just four years after his enrollment, he graduated with a Bachelor of Applied science (B.A.Sc.)in civil engineering.
