Tell us about yourself:
I became homeless in 2012 and used what social resources I could find to get up and out ever since. After 6 years of living on the street, then nearly 4 more residing in a dystopic inner-city halfway house, I've finally gained success in acquiring subsidized senior housing. Is as if I had been released from prison.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
Basic computer and keyboarding skills Functional homelessness: ** Setting up an infrastructure ** minimizing--carrying what you need ** maintaining body-health and relative well-being ** being proactive--"moving forward" out of homelessness Staying "busy"; setting up a simple online business Practical foundation in cryptocurrency and alternative banking
