Students Rising Above: Deja Sims, From East Palo Alto To Wesleyan University

 Deja Sims isn't a foster child, even though her parents couldn't care for her. She has attended so many different schools she can hardly remember them all. Nevertheless, Deja graduated as an honor student from East Palo Alto's Eastside College Prep and has been accepted at Connecticut's exclusive Wesleyan University. Wendy Tokuda reports. (7/11/14)
