I went along the Vinnies CEO Sleepout at Southbank. It was a great night. We all got to unite for a very important cause. I felt a strong comradery and sense of purpose that night to help the homeless and felt humbled to be their keynote speaker.
Here is my personal story of being homeless at a young age.
Yes, we all went back to our own beds the next day and felt warm and secure in our own home environment. However I was affected by sleeping on the concrete that night. It seemed to bring it all back to me and I really felt quite insecure. Am still dealing with this. I have decided that I would like to continue to raise awareness of the homeless.
