SALT LAKE CITY UT July 20, 2016
Millions of youth are homeless every year in America. Michael Gaulden was one of the very few young men who found his way out. Since beating homelessness, he’s felt compelled to share his story, to tell the truth about his experience.
“In my darkest hour there was no guiding light. I had to stumble along and faced many preventable obstacles along the way. I made mistakes. I did not have a map to follow the road of homeless life, let alone the inner city.”
Now, a graduate of UCLA, a professional educator, community activist and public speaker, Gaulden’s mission is to provide that guiding light for youth in the same situation as he was. His experience is one that defines resilience and perseverance no matter what obstacle any one faces.
