The homeless population in Maricopa County was estimated to be over 25,000 in 2015. The Student Health Outreach for Wellness works to provide homeless individuals with healthcare and services that they would have trouble getting otherwise. Mary Saxon, a student director of operations with SHOW, sat down with me over the weekend to talk about the organization and the services they provide to the homeless individuals. I wanted to make this video because as a student on the downtown Phoenix ASU campus I see these individuals around the campus on a regular basis just doing what they can in order to survive from day to day.
On May 13, 2016 Chezaray Mitchell was working as a convenience store clerk when he was shot and his life was changed forever. In December 2016 Chezaray returned to work for the same company and in the same location where he had been injured in May. In February 2017 I was able to sit down with Chezaray and discuss his injuries, his recovery, and how he feels about where he is now. Chezaray has shown extreme determination in the face of a situation and injuries that would lead most people to give up, and his outlook on life during this process truly inspiring.
