After being raped by a popular student, Fantasia dropped out of High Point High School, North Carolina in 9th grade. Three years later, she welcomed a daughter with her then-partner, who mistreat her.
However, in the end, Fantasia was given a platform to shine American Idol, and her music career took off. However, she still prioritized earning her GED, which she received in 2009, as noted by Black Star Atlanta.
Now, the 38-year-old is pursuing new goals.
