Williams arrived at B-CU in the fall of 2008 with $3,000 he saved from working at a gas station in Miami. He knew it wasn’t enough but felt confident.

Then he found out tuition, room and board ran about $10,000 a semester.

Williams wasn’t about to let that stop him.

He had never known his father, and he’s had little communication with his mother. A great-grandmother raised him in Atlanta until she was too sick to care for him. Then he moved to Miami to live with an aunt. Both women stressed the importance of finishing school. His great-grandmother, who has since died, always told him “to get as much knowledge as possible so I won’t end up on the streets.”

Good kid, mad city.
