19-year-old homeless boy gets the chance to prove himself, gains admission to US university

Jeremiah Armstead, a 19-year-old homeless boy with determination, overcame obstacles related to homelessness to secure a position at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States.

Jeremiah Armstead relocated to California with his mother, brother, and sister when he was a high school student. Throughout his high school years at the Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California, they resided in both automobiles and domestic violence shelters.

He decided to utilize his difficulties as fuel and inspiration to work toward success as a result of his struggles. He put a lot of effort into his studies and his basketball career. Jeremiah Armstead was ultimately accepted to Fisk University after spending three years in a homeless situation with his family.

“That’s all I needed. That’s all I ever needed in life was a chance’” Armstead said, according to the outlet. “I just want to show people that’s in my circumstances like ‘don’t stop.’ Don’t ever think of giving up because just like that, stuff could change,” he added.

Jeremiah Armstead’s mother, Mindy Brooks, joyfully announced the news of her son’s entrance to the university and selection to the university’s basketball team when Jeremiah was staying at his friend’s home.

“I’m not surprised Jeremiah is where he’s at today. I’m not surprised because he’s always been a good person,” she told the outlet.
