ITHACA, NY-Svante Missick, a biracial 24-year-old who was homeless as a child, is now the mayor of Ithaca, New York.

Missick graduated from Cornell University and has become the youngest mayor ever in Ithaca, after serving on the Ithaca City Council while still in college.

NBC News reports:

Myrick’s family was at times homeless when he was young. He was raised by his mother and grandparents in upstate New York. Myrick is biracial, the son of a white mother and African American father. His upbringing and early political success has drawn comparisons to President Obama. While Myrick shies away from the comparison, he acknowledges that the president did inspire him.

“Well, if this, you know, guy with that name and those ears can do it, then a guy with this name and these ears can do it,” Myrick said.
