Dahiro Darur

Hi my name is Dahiro Darur I am 18 years old and I was homeless for about 1 month until I came to covenant house. I became homeless because I left home on my own. I didn’t want to live with my family because they have different religious beliefs for me. I was also trying to get away from my dad who was physically abusive to my mom, older brother, older sister and emotionally abusive towards me. I also didn’t feel like I had very good friends who would be there for me when I needed it.

What is one important lesson learned while transitioning into adulthood?

I learned that you can’t always depend on other people to do things for you because they may or may not follow through. You can’t give other people the power to control your destiny.

What are your goals for your adulthood?

Be happy with whatever I decide to do with my life. 

What is one thing you would like Seed House Project’s assistance in?

Finding stable housing.
