A 17-year old homeless kid named Tupac Mosley has stunned his colleagues after graduating as the best student of Raleigh Egypt High School in Tennessee eastern United States.

Tupac Mosley who emerged as the best student in his class despite facing several challenges of being homeless maintained a 4.3 GPA and got accepted to more than 40 universities in the United States.
