Christine is on social assistance, she calls herself a “recycler-crazy-artist” and can generate $45.00 per day recycling. She hunts for treasures and makes art
from found objects. As well, she draws with ink, crayons and pencils.
She has a 9 year old daughter, but her ex keeps them apart.
Advice to young people thinking about a life on the street:
“Get a real job if possible, what I do is an honest job, I don’t sell drugs, and there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
Never trust anyone on the streets.”
