TCC student overcomes homelessness…now working on second degree
A homeless woman inspires others while working on earning her second college degree. Cynthia Felton said she used to sleep under a bridge near the courthouse in Norfolk, in graveyards and in porta-potties while homeless. Felton is now working on her second degree at Tidewater Community College and hopes to eventually get her bachelors in theological studies. Also, she states the reason why she homeless is because she left an abusive relationship several years ago for her safety and she had no where else to go. It wasn’t but eventually after a lot of hard work she got her associate degree in social science.
