A Story of Inspiration: Khadijah Williams

I just finished reading a compelling story covered in the Los Angeles Times about a homeless teenager who managed to survive the mean streets of South Central. She graduated 4th in her class, with the help of altruistic counselors, teachers and mentors; and will be attending Harvard in the fall of 2009.

Thank you all for your kind words for Khadijah and those who supported her. Khadijah has started her freshman year at Harvard College and has a website that provides updates - http:///www.khadijahwilliams.com.

Khadijah was interviewed this week for an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show entitled "Don't Stop Believing." It is scheduled to air on Friday, October 2. Watch for Oprah's surprise for Khadijah!
