I had the privilege of working on this story for The Boston Globe with writer Billy Baker and photographer Yoon S. Byun. These kids are amazing. They’ve had every obstacle thrown in their path — poverty, familial language barriers, abuse, their father’s suicide, living in a rough neighborhood, and much more than you could ever imagine — and yet they are top students at one of the best exam high schools in Boston.
