This story inspired me so much!


Eighteen-year-old Rashema Melson has overcome homelessness to earn a full scholarship at one of the country’s most prestigious college campuses, Georgetown University. She and her family live in a single room inside of a homeless shelter in Washington, D.C.


Oftentimes when unexpected events occur in life, it can cause us to give up on ourselves. This young lady’s journey proves the power of pressing forward even when circumstances are grim and unpromising.

 Let Nothing Stop You

“When I think about being here and I think about making something better of myself and I think about what I can accomplish………I know my life will be better,” said Melson.

 Let Nothing Stop You

Have you ever found yourself allowing life’s situations to stop you? Are you letting things stop you right now? If so, watch this video – and then watch it again. The journey of Rashema Melson is a reminder to let nothing stop you in life. You are not your surroundings, and your starting point does not have to dictate your outcome. No matter what life may bring your way, never stop believing that ‘your life will get better’ too.
