One teen beats all the odds overcoming homelessness and finding opportunity in a stack of acceptance letters.

Dylan Chidick and his family moved from Trinidad when he was seven-years-old. His family faced countless heartaches -- being in and out of homelessness.

But 17-year-old Chidick, set his goal high and met them, and now he has his pick of 17 colleges.

"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," said Chidick.

Dylan also became the senior class president at his high school and was inducted into the honor society.
