Amie told us what her tattoo means to her: “My tattoo represents ‘patience’, my personal message to myself. It’s my reminder! I spent years trying to rush things in life and now I’m focused on slowing things down. I’ve been in my new place for three months now, away from my past triggers and it’s all about study and a stable home for me now. I’m appreciating a better life.”

Amie is 19 and has experienced homelessness since she was 14. We’re so excited for her that she’s now in her own place and has a stable home, allowing her to think about what’s next!
