Here is the story of an amazing family!

The 24-year-old Rehan Staton comes from a single-parent family with the father and a brother. “My mom abandoned my dad, my brother and I when she moved back to Sri Lanka,” said Rehan.

Staton spent years waking up in the early morning hours to collect trash for Bates Trucking & Trash Removal before attending class at the University of Maryland. It was an arduous job that left him no time to shower.

Rehan’s  inspiring  life experience  

« My dad lost his job at one point and had to start working three jobs in order to provide for us. It got to the point where I barely got to see my father, and a lot of my childhood was very lonely. »

Despite this Staton excelled in high school while also training to become a professional boxer. But his dreams were diverted when he experienced a double shoulder injury during his senior year. When he didn’t get into college, Staton signed up to become a sanitation worker — and the experience would be life-changing.

But during his studies, his father experienced a stroke, and Staton rejoined Bates Trucking & Trash Removal to support his family and continue his schooling.

After graduating in 2018, Staton took an analyst job at a consulting firm in Washington D.C. He eventually applied to law school and was accepted to several ivy league universities. Ultimately, Staton chose Harvard Law School, and he will start class this fall. A GoFundMe has been set up to raise funds for Staton’s tuition and has raised more than $46,000 as of Wednesday afternoon.
