BIOGRAPHY
I never really know what to say about these things but I think I'm pretty down to earth and easy to get along with. People seem to like me mostly because my name reminds me of their Grandmother but I'm okay with that. Also, I think I'm funny but I'm also that person that laughs at their own jokes but is also the only one laughing at the joke.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH POVERTY
My parents came here as refugees back in 1997 so growing up we didn't always have a whole lot. I'm currently in university studying to work with at-risk youth, which many do come from impoverished backgrounds. I'm an advocate for poverty, as well as things that may be correlated to it such as mental health problems and addiction. I believe that no matter who you, every human being deserves basic necessities in life and that there are too many resources in this world to have anyone starving.
