In other news, a 39-year-old lady who was homeless and slept on airport floor has now become a successful entrepreneur that has created a scholarship for black undergraduates at Oxford University.
Arlan Hamilton, who slept at San Francisco airport with a backpack and a laptop, is the creator of the first scholarship fund targeted at black undergraduates at Oxford University.
The scholarship covers fees and living cost for one undergraduate a year for three years beginning in 2020.
The scholarship is valued at around $300,000 (N110,100,000) and its beneficiary must be of African and Caribbean heritage and from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
Each student will also be given $3900 grant to pursue careers in their chosen field.
She told USA TODAY: “I plan on doing this for several schools over the next decade and starting with Oxford because I’ve spent a great deal of time with their students and faculty, and Dillard because it’s my mom’s alma mater and shaped her.”
Speaking about the time she was homeless, Arlan said: “It was pretty traumatic to sleep on the floor of the airport and hope that that’s not illegal because I didn’t know at the time.”
