Her name is Carol. She is 22, and she has been living on the streets for four years now. On her collarbone the words ‘awaking my soul from darkness’ are written. They refer to her late father who passed away when she was only two. He was 27 years old. The grief is still immense. Very softly she says: “I just miss my dad.”
