Many of our favorite celebrities had a really tough beginning. Some had to get several jobs to help support their family, some grew up not even able to support food, and others were even without a home, living on the streets. It’s pretty inspiring when you think about how anyone with any type of background or past can rise up achieve their ultimate dreams. With that said, let’s look at the 20 we have listed here as inspiration!
1. Nicki Minaj
Nicki was born in the Port of Spain in Trinidad and soon moved to the United States when she was only just 5 years old. She grew up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood in Queens, New York and prayed every night before bed to be rich so that she could take care of her mother. Now she makes around $15 million each year and her net worth is $60 million!
