A day they will mark my life.

People Skool for Poverty Skolaz- Ingrid

My name is Ingrid De Leon. Mother of a princess and three beautiful children. This is a story about power. Of leaders of organizations.
 
I feel like garbage. I was seeking help from my adoptive family. I didn't ask for money. I made tamales, so I could sell them, and they would buy them, and to feel that I wasn't begging for money. But for a moment I felt like I was in the clouds, because there were people buying my tamales, and I needed the money.

A Payee
 
In 2017 mid-November, in crisis, my fear grips me vice-tight. Already missed two housing dates, a third postponed.
