Pictured: “I was born and raised in the streets. I do not know who my parents were. I did not even have a name. I named myself. I was abused and beaten more times than I can recall in the streets. An opportunity to go to school was the highlight of my life. I advise my classmates to focus, stay in school and not be swayed by things that will lead them down a destructive path.” – Linda Kelly, former street child.
