You’re not the only one. Here’s the story of Shannon Satonori Lytle. The man is the son of an immigrant and warehouse worker. He is the eldest among four siblings. who he took care of. Couldn’t afford a laptop, so he spent 150 minimum wage hours to save up for it. He lived in a home without wifi, so he stuck his computer out of his window to use his neighbours.

His story is one of hardships and strife and no small amount of pain. But the man took everything that was handed to him, everything terrible, and took it in stride.

He made a heartwarming and endearing Facebook post

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 extracurriculars 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.

And the internet loves him for it.

They were inspired and proud

Some were a little cheek in tongue with how they felt, but it was still positive vibes all round.

Others were a little sad to hear how hard it was for a boy to chase his dreams.

Most were, like me, impressed with his endless pools of motivation.

This is how you make America great again.
