A truly amazing story. Not someone I know personally, but my best friend went to GSE with her. I can't imagine what she went through, but I am inspired by her success under such a strained situation. I also can't believe the kindness of strangers in this situation ... Harvard chose well.

"In March, the mail brought bulky envelopes filled with acceptance letters, pamphlets and welcome folders from colleges.

North Carolina State University.

Warren Wilson College.

Davidson College.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

All said yes to Burns High senior Dawn Loggins.

She still hadn’t heard from Harvard University. She was feeling doubtful.

Mn, yeah, read the full story here. It isn't spam or anything. XD
