Twyanna Williams, a 65-year old grandmother from Philadelphia, has finally graduated from high school after putting her education off for several years due to financial reasons. What’s more, is she was honored as the class valedictorian!
When she was a teen, Williams didn’t have a chance to continue high school since her parents separated. She had to take jobs to help the family financially.
“I felt sad for myself for coming out of school and seeing my friends graduating but I was working,” Williams told The Philadelphia Inquirer. “My focus was on surviving.”
