Eboni Boykin is not your average college student. She has faced adversity that not many can relate to throughout her life. The odds are already stacked against her as a Black Female in America, now you add that she has been homeless all her life. Eboni Boykin shows that you can overcome almost any obstacle as she spent her youth living in homeless shelters and cars with her single mother and younger siblings.
She once bounced around countless schools in Mississippi and Missouri, but through it all she was able to maintain her grades and earn a full scholarship so now she doesn’t have to burden her mom with any expenses. Eboni is living out her dreams with a steady place to stay in Columbia University. Eboni says that it has yet to sink in, but she is incredibly happy and determined to graduate and succeed. SanCopha Salute to Eboni for never giving up and believing in herself.

Do you have an African style icon?
My original fashion hero is my Malawian Grandmother, Gogo, who was the village dressmaker. She could stitch up a marriage and mend a broken heart with a sewing machine. With this foundation I am constantly on a journey to explore African fashion further.
Will Always reblog her!
