I was first introduced to homelessness, and saw it for what it was, when I was living in Victoria, BC.
On the days when I went to the market I would fill my pockets with change then dole it out, thinking I had the solution to the problem. It did not take long for me to realize how wrong I was!
So many homeless people had nowhere else to go. Some were suffering for addictions, mental illness or disabilities. Others were running from an environment worse than the one in which they were living. But what was most surprising were those who had chosen to live there.
This experience was the inspiration for me to write #StellaWho.
