17-year-old homeless kid beats colleagues to become school’s best student, wins $3m scholarship to study Engineering

After graduating as Raleigh Egypt High School’s top student in Tennessee’s east, Tupac Mosley, a 17-year-old homeless teenager, astonished his peers.

Tupac Mosley, the top student in his class despite suffering difficulties like homelessness, kept a 4.3 GPA and was accepted into more than 40 American universities.

He also won a cumulative $3 million scholarship fund, including the Gates Bridge Scholarship, to study at the University. “When I heard that I got $3 million, I was more than elated and excited and astonished that it was that much,” Mosley told Fox 13.

Due to the death of Tupac’s father, his family was unable to pay off their obligations. They eventually had to leave their home, and ever then, they have been living in different houses all throughout Memphis, USA.

Thankfully, they learned about “For the Kingdom”, a nonprofit organization that helps urban children and teens make positive choices while simultaneously providing a camping site. Tupac was grateful for the opportunity to spend time with his family.

Tupac has registered at Tennessee State University in the United States to pursue a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering.
