Like Daughter, Like Daughter

Yolanda grew up in a privileged Berkeley neighborhood, but her loneliness drove her to teen pregnancy and later, the streets.  Yolanda’s mistakes catalyze of a cycle of addiction, leading her daughter towards a similar fate.

Thanks so much to Emile Klein of "You're U.S." for collecting this story. Emile is spending the next few years bicylcling across the United States and gathering stories from Americans. He will also be painting their portraits in exchange for places to stay--check out Emile's awesome quest and his version of Yolanda's story right here.
