STOP! Please read the following story, it's very important to me!
So, I know that this isn't a fashion/glamour shot - but it would mean the world to me if you took a look, and/or shared it via your own Facebooks, Tumblrs, Twitter's, Google+'s - etc. It would seriously mean the world.
Joshua Johnson is a student at my school. Like most kids here he has a good heart & is very involved with a lot of activities here on campus. And really wants to graduate and make it in the world.
However, unlike many of our students here - he is paying penny out of pocket for college tuition. On the weekends he goes home to New York and tap dances on the subway for tips.
His story is incredible and for those who are his friends, and or have had an interaction with him, we are all very proud - especially because with his "Plan A" he knows that he's going places!
In the past several weeks he has appeared on the Ellen Show twice - as well as ABC news & in the New York Times.

It would mean the world if you could share his story with everyone, because he truly deserves the small miracles that has come his way, and the miracles that will continue to come.
This image was taken during the BSU "King of Hearts" Fashion Show, here on campus.
