Having no money is a prison in itself. You can go nowhere. The only thing you can do is take a walk. You have no power, having no power you have no self-esteem…. I have to rebuild my life. How do you rebuild your life, how do you believe in yourself? Because we’re brainwashed every day with these subliminal messages of people looking down on you cause you’re on welfare. All this is very powerful. It’s imprinted on the mind and you suffer it. Your mental plane, emotional plane, and everything suffers. So you’re down. (Katharine, interview)
