Cameron grew up in foster care and detention centers. He says growing up in group homes didn’t show him what the world is really like.

I met Cameron in Winnipeg, Canada at a youth drop-in center. He shared a story of being dropped off under a bridge and saw the life he was living. He decided to change and travel to British Columbia, where he continued a journey of growth.

The night before this interview Cameron slept next to some railroad tracks. As bad as that seems, and it is bad, the good news is as of this interview Cameron found a job.
