A young Atlanta native, Chelesa Fearce, has become an example of what it means to be resilient and determined after she moved from being homeless while in high school to being a student at Yale University.
The 24-year-old student would be starting school at the university as a medical student to earn a degree and a PhD. ”The future is going to be bright,” was quoted by https://www.bet.com, who stated in an interview with Atlanta’s 11Alive.
Chelesa Fearce has set high goals for herself and she proved this when she scored a 4.6 GPA at Charles Drew High School and became a valedictorian.
Chelesa is already set for a thriving career and says she wants to become a child psychiatrist. She plans to go into residency after she graduates from Yale University. Chelesa noted the challenges that comes with attaining that feat especially because no one in her family has done that to serve as a role model. However, she indicated that she believes in herself and hopes to be an inspiration for younger children, especially young girls.
