I Heart Underdog Stories

"If she were to win the $1 million, Williams says she would spend much of it paying for her daughters' education. The older of her two girls, Jenni, is studying nursing at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and has at least three more years to go until graduation. Sarah, 13, starts high school in the fall and hopes to someday work with animals, Williams says."

I hope she wins.

Have you seen this?

The "pimp," a white woman wearing blackface and sporting a fake gold tooth, won the prize for best costume, the complaint said."
