Advice columnist E. Jean at Elle Magazine presented the opportunity of a lifetime to a homeless girl who will spend the next four months as her personal intern.
The homeless girl, Bri, who was living in a Wal-Mart parking lot, was offered the internship at the prestigious fashion magazine after she wrote a letter to the columnist explaining her situation and seeking advice on how to get another shot after screwing up a job interview.
This real-life lucky break is reminiscent of the storyline in the movie, "The Pursuit Of Happyness," which saw the main character, Chris Gardner, earn a high-profile internship while living homeless and go on to achieve millionaire status.
