Teen Impact: Finalist #10

Every child deserves a home: a place that is safe, meals to eat, and a school to learn in. Millions of American youth are homeless. My mission is to raise awareness of this problem in America. I have walked across the country on this mission, visiting shelters, sleeping on the streets, and donating backpacks filled with school supplies. I am currently in Africa visiting homeless youth there. Our children need help to find homes.
