I am 35 years old. The work I have done includes sign manufacturing, roofing labor, carnival games operations, and reinforcing steel prior to being stabbed in the neck. During my work experience I enjoyed all of it and would do it again. I would do pretty much any kind of work I could find right now. If I had unlimited resources I would have to say I would open a larger shelter, a rehabilitation center and a community center to make more place for people to get help.
