(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
Destyni Tyree also got a full-ride scholarship to college.

Despite living in a homeless shelter, she graduated high school in two years, was crowned prom queen at the school’s first prom (which she helped organize), and got a full ride scholarship to college — all while working 25 hours a week and participating in extracurricular activities like cheerleading.
