There’s an Atlanta teen who really knows how to Feed Her Good Dog. 17 year-old Danielle Galloway grew up in Atlanta, bouncing from school to school and shelter to shelter as her family struggled with homelessness. What she concentrated on was her school work, and she sometimes used studying as a way to escape from the turmoil in the shelters.
That focus is about to pay off big-time. Last week, while with Terina Isaac, her school counselar and mentor, Danielle found out that she’s going to college at Boston University on a full scholarship. Ms. Isaac’s door was always open for Danielle, and she is the reason that Danielle is going to BU. Ms. Isaac nominated Danielle for the scholarship, and the two women were happy to be together when Danielle found out she had won the opportunity to attend college.
Danielle is the oldest of six children, and her siblings are all very close. She hopes that her success will inspire the rest of them to also take school seriously, and encourages them to make good grades a priority.
In addition to Ms. Isaac, Danielle was also inspired by Connie Buchanan, a nurse in the homeless shelter where her family lived. Danielle would visit with Ms. Buchanan often…she always felt she could be herself. The two would discuss Danielle’s passion at the time to become a doctor.
