The oldest of nine children, growing up with a single mother, Asiae was often responsible for his siblings. Sometimes they lived in homes with no heat, no hot water and pallets on the floor for beds. Despite everything, he never lost hope in his future or his mother. Asiae has always liked learning and been a good student. He is a leader in his community and an active volunteer in his church. He loves to sing and draw, and hopes to become an architect or plastic surgeon. Asiae is a 2014 Children's Defense Fund Ohio Beat the Odds scholarship recipient. Watch his story, listen to him sing and learn more about the program http://bit.ly/IJS8hg .
