A Son Of A Warehouse Worker And An Immigrant Graduates From Harvard After A Lot Of Struggle


It is true that the struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Shannon Satonori Lytle will strongly agree as he has seen some great life struggles as he went on to conquer them and emerge as a winner. The son of a warehouse worker and an immigrant was once told that only the children of doctors and lawyers go to Ivy League Schools.

Shanon had to flip burgers at McDonald’s so that he could sit for his SAT. He looked after his three baby siblings and stayed up until 4 am to complete his homework. Since he couldn’t afford a car, he had to walk home crossing the dangerous part of the city.

He got his laptop after working 150 minimum wage hours. Shanon takes pride in telling us that he has scrubbed toilets, shelved books and sold clothing to chase his dreams.

And after all this, he finally graduates from Harvard. That degree is his fruit for all his hardwork. Kudos to Shannon, the son of a warehouse worker and an immigrant for not giving up on his dreams!

He wrote,

"In high school, I flipped burgers at McDonald’s so I could afford the privilege of taking the SAT. I fed and cared for my three baby siblings until they went to sleep and stayed up until 4am to do my homework. I walked home through a dangerous part of the city after extracurricular because I couldn’t afford a car. I stuck my laptop out of my window at night to steal my neighbour’s wifi and finish my schoolwork.
"I was scoffed at and told, "from this part of Ohio, only the children of doctors and lawyers get to go to Ivy League Schools." In college, I panicked when my laptop broke because I had worked 150 minimum wage hours to buy it. I scrubbed toilets, shelved books, and sold clothing so I could chase my dreams and travel the world. Throughout my life, I have manoeuvred and begged for every kind of subsidy and coupon. I'm the son of a warehouse worker and an immigrant; a first generation student. Today, I graduated from Harvard."
