Leeza

While walking with James to Best Buy on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, my heart broke seeing Leeza sitting on the sidewalk “flying a sign”. Leeza is 22 years old and has been homeless in New York City for two months.

Leeza panhandles to survive. She is trying to save up her money to get back to the West Coast.

The night before she slept outside in the front of a church.
