America's celebrated gymnast Simone Biles, 20, launched a scholarship program that would help foster kids to study and achieve their dreams.

“Knowing what it means to have the odds stacked against you, I believe it is my duty to provide assistance to those most in need. For this reason, I am launching a scholarship fund at UoPeople for foster kids and others,” she told CNN recently.

“Our circumstances shouldn’t define us or keep us from our goals, especially if that goal is higher education. My hope is that I can help other foster care children realise that goal in the months and years ahead,” she added.
