The Mountain saved me – Sayyid

Voices from the Mountain

The Mountain saved me

“I was given a chance, a chance in a place where people really cared and helped me through some tough spots. I want to give that back to others, and I’m planning on going to college. If I can do this, so can others. We just have to give them the same chance, too. For me, I was just one drug deal away to being lost to a different world, and the Mountain saved me.”
