17 College Acceptance Letters: Be inspired with this 17 year old’s record breaking story

Dylan Chidick a couple of years ago would never have seen his present situation coming. Overcoming homelessness, the 17-year-old has been accepted into 17 US colleges!

Dylan and his family moved from Trinidad when he was only seven, and they’ve been in and out of homelessness. His younger twin brothers are also living with serious heart conditions. But Dylan overcame all these.

“I have to have a lot of determination,” he told Action News.

There has been a lot of people saying, ‘you’re not going to achieve this.’ And me, getting these acceptance letters kind of verifies what I have been saying, that I can do it, and I will do it.

Dylan is the first in his family to attend college, and although his other said, “it has been hard financially,” they’ve somehow managed to make it work.

His top school, the College of New Jersey, is yet to get back to him, but a yes from them would bring his acceptance up to 18.

Watch him share his win below:
