How New Jersey Teen Accepted to 18 Colleges Overcame Homelessness
March 25, 2019
It's an incredible accomplishment for any teen: getting accepted to 18 colleges. But when Dylan Chidick starts classes at the College of New Jersey this fall, it will be an extra special moment. Not only is he the first person in his family to go to college, but Chidick also overcame homelessness and studied hard to get into his top-choice school. His mother, Khadine Phillip, couldn't be more proud - or more grateful. "I don't know what heaven feels like, but I think it might be just that," she told CBS News.
