Hello. My name is Anthony Boyd. My first day as a Street Sense vendor was great. I met a Street Sense vendor by walking down the street and came up on Gerald Anderson, another vendor, who wrote a book called Still Standing. He told me about Street Sense and that I should go to the writers group. My journey began when I met Mr. Anderson on my first day at Street Sense.

I wanted to cry, because it was a joyful epiphany when I joined Street Sense, but I held my ground. I was just so happy to meet Mr. Anderson and all the other vendors. I learned a lot and within a few days my life couldn’t be better.

Little did Gerald know I was homeless and still struggling every day to find a place I can call home. So, I thank Street Sense for opening the door for me to come in.
