I am 31 years old and I am originally from Vancouver. The first time I was homeless and slept outside it was something crazy because I was used to sleeping in a house. The work that I have done in the past includes being a dishwasher at Boston Pizza and a dishwasher at the Kicking Horse Palace in Golden. The thing that has contributed the most to my difficulties is that I wrote a diary for everybody to look at. It was supposed to be private. What makes me feel happy is that I am changing for the upcoming new year. If I had unlimited resources I would make a difference in communities that needed them. I would like others to pray for me and hope that I do not die. I would rate homeless partners at a 7 because I don't really know them, but props to them for having this program.
