“Do you think you would of have had the same dreams, if you grew up homeless?”
“Yes I believe I would have grown up with the same dreams. They are ingrained in us as individuals. Perhaps I would’ve worked harder to get there??…absolutely”.
“I think had I grown up homeless I would of dreamt of having a loving, supportive family, somewhere to sleep at night and being able to eat whenever and whatever I wanted. Having grown up with all of these things I believe I was in a very fortunate position to be able to chase my dreams. So definitely not! My dreams and opportunities would of been very different”.
“If I was homeless my dreams would be a lot different. For one thing I don’t thing I’d have enough time to follow my basketball dream because I’d be to worried about where I was getting my next meal or where I was going to sleep that night and if it was safe. I think being homeless would have made it very hard to reach my dreams and goals in life”.
“I think I would have had the same dreams growing up to play rugby league at a high level, no matter where or how I grew up. Obviously I was fortunate enough to be presented with great opportunities to get into football at a young age in my area but in saying that I believe you make your own luck and no matter your situation everyone can have the same dream. Its not where you start its where you finish”.
“I believe the answer would be no… instead I’d say my dream would most likely be to have a home, a family and food on the table. Doing what I do now was a dream formed through many years of dance training. I would only assume being homeless wouldn’t allow luxuries like that hence changing many of my life long goals.”
