Liz Murray – From Homeless to Harvard

If you have not heard the story of  how a 15 year old girl went from living on the streets of NY to attaining an Ivy League education, you need to watch the movie by the same name. It’s on Youtube:

From Homeless to Harvard

It is the true story of Liz Murray, whose parents were drug addicts, and whose mom was an alcoholic who died of AIDS while Liz was but a child. She could have made excuses for her life, but she didn’t.

Liz also told her story in the bestseller memoir, “Breaking Night”.

Liz has gone on to motivate others at various speaking engagements. You can keep up with Liz via her Facebook page:
