This is a powerful story because of the emotional and physical pain the storyteller goes through. Particularly, the story details Alicia’s journey through family struggles and financial debt, enviably rendering her homeless.
Not only had I lost my father figure, my nuclear family, and my college savings within the space of two years, I no longer had a place to live—let alone call home.
But what makes this story great is Alicia’s hard work and determination. Things haven’t magically been fixed. But when she makes it through the struggle, she will be able to say she did it on her own.
