Fantasia did not drop out of high school just to drop out. She was raped in her school auditorium and after hearing whispers and constant reminders she decided to leave school. In the book she said she was even told ‘I’m gonna do you the same way he did you,’ and that for me was it…. I figured the best way to handle this was to never go back.” She received her GED after she became a successful singer! Winning and surviving!
