I wish… “That my dad is happy and healthy. He is retired now and likes traveling a lot. He spends anywhere from six to ten months over seas. I haven’t been able to get a hold of him yet.”
I look forward to… “I’d like to try going to college. To get training in something that isn’t physically intensive. [Something] that uses my head for more than a hair farm and a hat rack. I want to go back to a job, have a place of my own, and be a functional member of society.”
My favorite thing about the Poverello Center… “[Is] the quiet and tranquility. This stay was like a retreat. At least for a short period of time it allowed me to think about a lot of different things, like where do I go from here; what are my goals. There was one time when it was just a stop in the road.”
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
