"I grew up in San Paulo, Brazil and saw poverty just outside my door step,
growing up as a kid. We always try to understand what the homeless problem is,
but I've never had to experience poverty myself. I've never had to sleep outside
or anything like that. What made me (want to participate) was to really, truly
understand what these people go through on a daily basis." said Participant, Felipe Ferreira.
