Eleven years on the street.
“I have participated in several Arrels projects, some artistic and others awareness. They are all different but have something in common: In all of them, a relationship is established between very diverse people and they end up becoming a window into other people and groups and for me, this is one of the things I like the most.
In HomelessFonts, there are people who are interested in my handwriting. In the play L’últim crit, we built a relationship with classmates and with the public. I had to study and rehearse a lot, but what I want to emphasize the most is that I had a lot of fun, and a friendship was created between classmates. I remember the rehearsals and the meetings as spaces of friendship, complicity and fun.
I also participate in the awareness program with the Passejant Junts project, where I connect with students and tell them about my experience. There is a phrase that I always keep in mind: ‘Remember not to forget what happened to you, but forget to remember what happened to you,’ a contradictory phrase that means that we should not forget what happened to us so as not to repeat negative experiences, but that it is not necessary to always remember it so as not to punish ourselves. That’s why I think it’s good to talk to young people and explain my experience. Their interest and concern when they listen to me makes me feel useful, and the experience is very rewarding.
