Tupac Mosley, former homeless teen from Memphis, Tennessee, has embodied the spirit of Tupac Shakur, after receiving $3m in scholarships.
Seventeen year-old Tupac Mosley experienced financial difficulties with his family, when in February 2019, his father unexpectedly passed away. With bills piling up, Tupac Mosely and his family were evicted and forced to move into temporary accommodation. It was at this time where he described sleeping on the floor of a motel as the lowest point of his life.
Despite all of this pressure, Tupac continued to pursue his studies at Raleigh Egypt High and kept his head up. He reached out to nonprofit organization called ‘For the Kingdom’. For the Kingdom is a camping site and the organization’s goal is to help urban youth enjoy an experience that they might not get in the city. Once they was made homeless, Mosley and his family was able to stay in cabins thanks to ‘For the Kingdom’.
Tupac Shakur was once in the exact same position, almost thirty years ago. He was homeless and struggling through the hardship of poverty. But, as Mosley has done, he persevered and turned the hardship to fuel the fire to become successful.
Tomorrow I wake with second wind and strong because of pride. I know I fought with all my heart to keep the dream alive – Tupac Shakur, And 2morrow
