Penn State Student, Joshua Johnson, Tap Dances to Pay Tuition

March 19, 2012  |  

Can I just say that I love Ellen?! She seems like such a cool chick. She makes people laugh and in between all of that she manages to do some good.

Recently, she helped out college student, Joshua Johnson. Joshua, a student at Penn State University, is struggling to pay his way through college. With loans, grants, scholarships and a part time job, Joshua is still short when it comes to his tuition. So to make ends meet every weekend he travels five hours from Pennsylvania to the Penn Station subway stop in New York City.

While he’s there he tap dances for tips on the Subways. Ellen heard about his story and talent and featured him on her show.

You can learn more about Joshua’s story, watch him perform and see how Ellen helped him out at Black Voices.com.
