Save A Penny Employee #10

 

Hi my name is Christian Parker I am 22 years old and I have been homeless for 4 months. I became homeless when my family moved away to dallas I decided to move to Nashville. It was really hard trying to make it out on my own as a 21 year old. One day my car stopped I really didn’t know what to do so with the little amount of money I did have I bought a bus ticket to California hoping for a miracle. The first place I found was a homeless shelter for young adults called Covant House.

What is one important lesson learned while transitioning into adulthood?

The feeling of being alone is tough but once you nest you are pretty much alone.

What are your goals for adulthood?

To gain employment and to become a successful Christian  recording artist as well as start my own clothing brand.
