What are some examples of people who overcame a very disadvantaged background and achieved success?

There are many people around the world and throughout history that have overcame disadvantaged backgrounds and the like, and achieved great success.

Then there are others who, to our perceptions, seem like they came from a disadvantaged background or from a highly advantaged background and they end up the opposite.
