Why I'm using HandUp for microwave.

I'm unemployed and currently housed but I don't have hot food. The building gives cold food, but I need something to heat it up with.

If you contribute, I would be personally appreciative of your donation! Your generosity would mean the world to me!

About me.

I was born in the back of a taxi cab in Lucky Alley in the Mission, and I was raised in Hunter's Point. I've always lived in San Francisco: I worked in shipyards in the city, doing hard labor on ships. After that, I transformed and started to work as an accountant. Then, I transitioned to driving concrete trucks around Union City. I also worked as a mailman in North Beach and a window cleaner in different neighborhoods in the city, working on high-rises and in car lots. Then, opportunity knocked and I started going to school; I've been taking classes at City College for a year now.

My backstory.

I got in trouble with the law--a wrongful arrest--and it prevented me from being able to work federal, city and county jobs. I'm currently working on getting an expungement on my record so that I can work again. Meanwhile, I'm taking law classes and I've been learning more about the wrongful arrest.

My goals, moving forward.

I'm working to eventually be able to live day-to-day with an income that can keep me stable in this city. I don't want to be rich; I just want to be comfortable and be able to pay my bills. I'll keep going to school for a few more years, as I approach the Bar exam.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I dream of building myself a cottage in the country with with farm animals and retiring there--a stable with a horse to ride, and a henhouse with some chickens. That would put me at peace.
