Even bright, energetic students sometimes have to overcome great difficulties to attend college. In Michell’s case, she succeeded despite neglect, abuse, homelessness and three years in an orphanage. Finally she found a family and community that believed in her and supported her.

Michell believed that young people need advocates. Will you be the person who gives to another student struggling to get to college?
