“Part of being homeless is being lonely, and that’s one of the worst feelings in the world”, says 19 year-old Jermire from a Chicago youth shelter. Jermire feels homelessness was a life-lesson and he’s glad he could make it through all the bad experiences.
The good news is Jermire is going to make it. Even though he went through some of his high school years not knowing if he would eat or where he would sleep, Jermire’s attitude is strong and positive.
Jermire lived on the streets since he was 13. As sad as that is, on May 27th Jermire is graduating high school.
Watch till the end and you’ll see Jermire give one of his wishes to you.
