Darielle Davis, 2007

Darielle Davis, 17, of Oakland, Calif. poses for a portrait in the lobby of McClymonds High School in Oakland, where she is a senior. Davis' father was murdered before she was born in 1989, and she was raised by her grandmother and mother. She's overcome great odds to become valedictorian of her class and will attend the University of California at Berkeley in the fall. (D. Ross Cameron/The Oakland Tribune)
