Title: My United Way Voice 2019 Submission By Neftali
Description: I grew up as a poor immigrant in Edmonton so I used elements from my life to write about struggling with poverty and I hope that we can all take time to remember those who are still struggling. This is an issue that resonates deeply with me as my family is still struggling with poverty. The third verse of the song I wrote for my mom who worked so hard to raise three kids on her own without my father's help and she is still working hard just to survive. I hope others can hear this song and understand that they are not alone and that there are others that share and understand their pain.
