Dizzy Wright: "I was in seventh grade. My mom was making bad decisions, I suppose. We were in a place, everything was getting paid for and then all of a sudden there's no money to pay for it. It's like, 'Where the fuck did the money go?' My mom always kept kids in a kids' place. You never really know the ins and outs to the struggle. We stayed [at the homeless shelter] for like five months.

"We spent Christmas at that shelter. They had a Santa Claus come and give everybody presents. But he forgot one kids' present. Mine. I was the only kid that did not get a present. They gave me an extra piece of whatever we was eating. Like, 'Yeah, take this extra piece. Sorry.' They didn't bring anything extra and I didn't get one."
