Student Who Lived in Dumpster Featured in Lifetree Café

When: Sun., Sept. 4, 7 p.m. 2016

Perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, September 4, 2016. The program, titled “‘I Lived in a Dumpster’: How a Homeless Teenager Rose to the Top of Her Class,” features a filmed interview with Karina Sanchez, a woman who overcame multiple obstacles, including homelessness, to graduate from high school with a 4.3 GPA and receive scholarship offers from some of the America’s top universities. “I remember feeling so terrible; no one wanted me,” says Sanchez, who completed her high school career while secretly living in a Dumpster behind the school. “But I thought I could do it and I would be okay.” During the program, Lifetree participants will have the opportunity to consider times they have faced obstacles and how they responded. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located on the corner of Union and 13th, Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Bob at 707 672 2919 or
