FULLERTON, California -- When Antoine Turner moved out to California, he met his girlfriend, R Mya DeMarrco, at a party. When Antoine saw his grades dip as a freshman at Fullerton College, R Mya broke up with Antoine and told him she would not date him until he brought his grades back up.

Eventually he did and needless to say the two are still together.

During their relationship, R Mya has been right by Antoine s side, even sleeping in her car with him when he had no place to go.

Now R Mya plans to transfer from Cal State Fullerton to Boise State. She intends to live with Antoine, whose scholarship will help lead them both to a better life.

I don t care if I have to sleep on top of hot coals. She doesn t have to sleep in the car no more.
