  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • So you prepped me for college.

  • All the things you taught me, I'm going to do it in college.

  • You're going to see how great I am at doing it too.

  • We met in sixth grade but we became like, best,

  • best friends in eighth grade.

  • Yeah, last summer we was like the big fish in a little pond.

  • Now we're like little fish in a big pond.

  • You ready?

  • We out of here.

  • I know, I-- no choice.

  • No, it is a choice.

  • But you made the best choice.

  • I did.

  • I did.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Hello, Papi.

  • Hi.

  • When Ellen and Wal-Mart gave me a scholarship I was like, wow,

  • this is an amazing blessing because I

  • didn't want to put my parents into all that debt.

  • I don't want to be a burden.

  • You know like, oh you got to pay for college, you know.

  • [SPEAKING SPANISH]

  • My dad had an injury, before I was born

  • and before my sister was born, when he came to America.

  • My mom was the only one working and I would see her,

  • you know, leave every day and only come back at night.

  • So it's like, you know, I only had my dad.

  • So I grew up with my dad, like cooking for us,

  • and being there for us.

  • And, yeah, I'm going to miss them, yo.

  • I was just thinking about how much

  • I'm going to miss them now.

  • [SPEAKING SPANISH]

  • In a community where only 4% of the kids go to college,

  • students come from homes where the homes sometimes

  • have no food.

  • These kids have overcome all kinds of things

  • and all they want to do is go to college.

  • We reached out to the people at Wal-Mart.

  • They want to give each one of you a four-year scholarship.

  • [CHEERING]

  • I cannot wait to see, in four years,

  • what these young people are going to do.

  • I can't wait to see how we helped launch their lives.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Oh my gosh.

  • I'm ready to go.

  • Yeah, this is crazy.

  • Are you crying?

  • No, no, I can't.

  • I'm not trying to get emotional right now.

  • We haven't even gotten to the college.

  • We're going to be together so it's all right.

  • This day came by so fast.

  • I'm going to keep repeating it, how extreme this is.

  • It doesn't feel real, right?

  • It doesn't.

  • No more home.

  • No more home.

  • Stop, no-- don't say no more home!

  • This is going to be our home for--

  • We'll be back in November.

  • I told my parents, I was like, you

  • don't have to worry about it.

  • I'll see you guys often.

  • Are you ready to hit the road?

  • I'm ready to hit the road.

  • Let's go!

  • Let's go.

  • We can meet up when we're there.

  • You're getting me emotional.

  • Yeah, we got to stop!

  • Oh my gosh, guys.

  • Are you ready?

  • College road trip!

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Take advantage of everything.

  • Campus life is what you make it.

  • You have to take initiative and make things happen.

  • Don't sit there and wait.

  • This is our home place right here.

  • OK, then I go down around--

  • I know where I'm at!

  • We're here.

  • Yeah, we are.

  • We made it.

  • We're here!

  • There's nothing else to do but to do it.

  • My name's Quincy Phillips.

  • All right, Quincy.

  • So what to do-- the staff has gone through,

  • they've inventoried the space.

  • We have two keys in here-- key to the room,

  • key to the building.

  • We've got an orange wristband for you.

  • This is going to be your meal ticket for the next few days

  • until meal plans start on Saturday.

  • OK.

  • You want to head into Crossroads?

  • Yes.

  • All right.

  • Stings?

  • Bins?

  • You want to go see the room first?

  • Yes.

  • OK.

  • How's it going?

  • Quincy.

  • Pierce.

  • I know, we met.

  • Nice to meet you, brother.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • I know.

  • So, I see you got here first.

  • Yeah, I got here around one-ish--

  • Nice.

  • So just to give you a rundown--

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • You have a PlayStation.

  • Nice.

  • We'll do something with that.

  • And in there's a lot of the clothes over there.

  • And I think there's, like, all the games and all my DVDs

  • and stuff that I brought.

  • Christmas-- Aliens--

  • Yes.

  • My roommate he's super cool.

  • We met through text or whatever because we didn't

  • get to meet during orientation.

  • And he seemed pretty chill then but now we're in person

  • and we're speaking and we're clicking just fine.

  • So I think we're going to be super, like, besties.

  • Like cool friends and stuff.

  • I think this is going to be an interesting year together.

  • Oh, absolutely.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • This is the best room of them all.

  • This is the living room area.

  • We really don't-- I don't use it.

  • I'm in Corning Community College and I've been here for a week.

  • This is huge.

  • I know, right?

  • And I took the couch form the living room and put it in here.

  • It's nice in here, isn't it?

  • Thanks to my mom.

  • My mom, she decorates.

  • I don't.

  • I just watch and go along with it.

  • The kids here are great.

  • I've been loving it here, you know?

  • New place, new people, new things.

  • Hello, gorgeous.

  • Do you know I really say this, like, a lot.

  • I hear stuff that I don't hear in Brooklyn.

  • I saw a cricket for the first time in my life.

  • I thought it was a roach.

  • That's what I hear.

  • It's like, please tell them to shut up.

  • Like, why can't we make it go away?

  • I have two of these beds in my room at home,

  • like my mom's house room.

  • And my room is half this size.

  • So it was like two rooms and then

  • you barely could walk through the middle.

  • Honestly, you bump into the dressers and stuff.

  • And then my grandma's house is not that big.

  • There's one big bed and like four of us

  • sleep on that one bed.

  • So, you know, it was different.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Welcome to Albany!

  • Ah!

  • This is crazy.

  • We're actually here here.

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • OK, welcome to Albany.

  • Thank you.

  • Hi.

  • Welcome to Adirondack, I just need this from you.

  • I'm so excited to meet my roommate.

  • It's going to be so different living with someone

  • that I don't know.

  • Hi Ariel.

  • Nice to finally meet you in person.

  • This is cool.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • The closets are not that bad.

  • Like you say, they're--

  • Oh, this is nice!

  • Oh, this is cute!

  • OK, OK.

  • That's your side, that's her side.

  • The view is beautiful.

  • I know, with the view!

  • I am overwhelmed, overjoyed, ecstatic.

  • I'm just so--

  • I feel like I'm on an emotional roller coaster right now.

  • The campus is really big.

  • You see green grass, trees, and the view is spectacular.

  • We got lost, went around in a circle a couple of times,

  • but we made it.

  • OK.

  • Can you bring me that one?

  • I think I'm excited.

  • I'm a little excited to just start the college life,

  • you know?

  • It's been four years of waiting.

  • I feel like I'm that much closer to the real world, which

  • is kind of scary.

  • But I'm ready.

  • I like this view better.

  • Because you see the big circle, the whole campus, and the sun's

  • right there not too, too in the room, you know?

  • Perfect.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • I won Best Actor Award of 2016.

  • I also got a community service award

  • for doing work in my neighborhood.

  • I'm going to miss my baby.

  • He's my right hand man.

  • I told you that.

  • I'm going to miss him a lot.

  • I know he's going to do what he's got to do.

  • That's one thing I know, from the heart.

  • Because he's a smart kid.

  • I just want him to watch his back in this surrounding.

  • At least I know that train will come

  • to see my baby where he's at.

  • That's the only thing.

  • Grandma.

  • You better behave yourself.

  • I will.

  • [INAUDIBLE] I will.

  • I know.

  • I love you.

  • I love you too.

  • The opportunity Wal-Mart and Ellen

  • gave me made me appreciate life more.

  • It made me more grateful for what I have.

  • I'm at a place where I can relate to everyone,

  • which is a really good feeling.

  • I don't have to worry about not being in a safe environment.

  • I know I'm at a better place now.

  • I definitely feel like I made it out the hook.

  • Wal-Mart helped me a lot.

  • My microwave came from Wal-Mart, my laptop

  • came from Wal-Mart, what else?
