Hudson dropped out of high school before the age of 16 and spent years working low wage jobs before realizing education was a key to moving towards success.

WKYC reporter Danielle Wiggins shares Margo’s story of how hard work and dedication opened doors to a new life for the 57 year-old who thought she had nothing to offer.
