"I moved here with my family when I was two. From domestic violence to physical, sexual and emotional abuse, there was always a lot going on in my house. For a long time I just assumed everyone's life was like mine. When I was 17, I had an altercation with my dad in the parking lot of my church. People saw and told an officer nearby.

“It wasn’t until middle school that I realized my parents might have a problem with addiction. In 2014 my mother passed away. I was living in Louisiana and was worried that I wasn’t going to be able to finish high school. My dad couldn’t hold down a job and was living in a halfway house. I decided to move to Tampa alone to finish my senior year and ended up in a program for unaccompanied...

She was in out of jail throughout our lives and struggled with addiction. Of all my...

“When I was 6 I lost contact with my dad and when I was in 8th grade my mom was incarcerated. She wasn’t released until my third semester of college. I lived with my aunts but it wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I learned that I was considered an unaccompanied youth. One of my teachers helped me get placed in a homeless youth education program called Project Upstart. Once I was...
