Learn more about A Day in the Life: Perspective on Poverty
"I participated in the poverty simulation, I figured the event would open our eyes to issues that contribute to poverty. It did that and more. By the end of the simulation my ‘family’ was exhausted and hopeless when it was over. I cannot imagine living in that world 24/7. This opportunity taught a lesson in empathy that changed our perspectives on poverty."
