Life According to Rashema Melson

Rashema Melson

Money? Hmm. Got to get more of it.  (Rashema Melson)

Today I listened to a wonderful Death, Sex & Money podcast on Rashema Melson. She made national news for becoming the valedictorian of her high school while living in a homeless shelter with her family in Washington, DC.  Melson is now a sophomore at Georgetown University after receiving a full scholarship. Amazing!  I’m surprised I wasn’t aware of her story until today considering I live in her area. But Melson is so much more than the homeless valedictorian that she is often referred to as and she wants you to know it.

During the interview Melson was poised, bright, and confident.  You can check out her website to learn more about Ms. Rashema. If you want to contribute to her academic pursuits, you can do so at her GoFundMe page.
