Episode 1: I Used to Sell Drugs and be Homeless

April 30, 2015



At the Bret Harte school in San Francisco’s Bayview, we met Miss Kay, who goes the extra mile for the kids at her school. She’s earned respect, admiration, and love, but not all is flowers and daisies. Join us as we learn about the past that motivates her to move forward and how a chance encounter with the Tzu Chi Foundation opens up a troubling question.
