‘MERICA! Boy Who Grew Up Homeless Defies All the Odds

Mich Hamlin

This story is what America is truly about. We are not a republic built on handouts but hands up! Liberal dependency and socialist tyranny do not make America what she is, stories like this one do.

Mich Hamlin and his brother grew up homeless with two drug addicted parents on the streets of Pomona, California. They would often sleep on cardboard in a corner of a park or lay on a mattress beside dumpsters after having to clear a path to put them down and watching for police officers. A woman who ran a thrift shop nearby would give them donations when she could.

When Mich was 13, he and his brother were put in foster care and learned shortly after that their mother had died from liver cancer and his father moved away. None of these hurdles stopped Mich. He graduated from high school and found an amazing program called Renaissance Scholars at Cal Poly-Pomona and, with the help of the program, just graduated from college!

Mich and his brother could have easily become another statistic or boys who were lost in the system, but they didn’t. He overcame all the obstacles put in front of him and is now helping his brother graduate from college and mentoring other foster kids.
