Soaring High: Khadijah Williams Overcomes Homelessness and Graduates from Harvard

Photos from Khadijah Williams’s Facebook page

We’ve been following Khadijah Williams, who as a teen overcame homelessness and difficult circumstances to live her dream of attending Harvard University, ever since her story was on the news and later when she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Khadijah graduated from Harvard this year and we congratulate her on an amazing accomplishment and for her perseverance. Oprah Winfrey spoke at the Harvard 2013 graduation ceremony and spoke about Khadijah (you can hear what she says below at the 27:15 mark). Congratulations Khadijah, thanks for being an inspiration!
