Lifetree Café: I Lived in a Dumpster

October 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The program, titled “‘I Lived in a Dumpster’: How a Homeless Teenager Rose to the Top of Her Class,” features a filmed interview with Karina Sanchez, a woman who overcame multiple obstacles, including homelessness, to graduate from high school with a 4.3 GPA and receive scholarship offers from some of America’s top universities.

“I remember feeling so terrible; no one wanted me,” says Sanchez, who completed her high school career while secretly living in a dumpster behind the school. “But I thought I could do it and I would be okay.”

During the program, Lifetree participants will have the opportunity to consider times they have faced obstacles and how they responded.
