Strangers help BU student to stay in school

  • After his family couldn't afford to pay for his tuition, a Boston University student created a page on GoFundMe as a last resort. 

    Alexis Felix had hoped her friends and relatives would help her raise $5000 over a span of few months but it only took 27 hours for total strangers and her former classmates and teachers to chip in for her education. 

    Felix referred to all those people as being "incredible" and said they have shown her that "there is love in this world and that hard work is never in vain no matter how hopeless a situation seems."

    She raised $6,500 and plans on using the extra money toward her tuition next year.
