Deserted by parents, she went from homeless to Harvard


(New York)--If you are sitting at home feeling sorry for yourself...get up and get over it!  This is truly a story that inspires! I openly sobbed this morning while viewing this story.  It's heartbreaking, but what a remarkable young woman.  You decide, "victim or victor?"  One things for certain we can't choose our parents, but we damn sure don't have to be "saddled with them!"  #IJS
