Gaining Hope – Tyreesha with artist SassyBlack
Tyreesha grew up in Vancouver, WA, and described her childhood as loving and filled with laughter. Upon graduating high school Tyreesha moved to Seattle to pursue a degree in Latin American and Caribbean studies at the University of Washington. During this time, she was employed by an overnight shelter for youth. Tyreesha was emotionally spent from her job, seeing firsthand how homelessness disproportionally affects certain populations. She met with artist SassyBlack to share her story. Stay tuned for SassyBlack's song!
