Full speed ahead is the motto for these resilient winners

One was left without a father or a mother by the age of 9. Another managed to juggle college-prep courses while suffering from a serious affliction. A third escaped civil war and smuggled medicine for sick refugees. A fourth scrappy overachiever understands his self-worth and goals easily trump the negative impact of the stares, finger-pointing and taunts that he knows may follow him throughout his life.
