Keerthy

Keerthy

I was living with my aunt until I was 21. Shortly before my birthday I told her I was transgender and wanted to transition. She didn’t like it so she kicked me out. I slept rough in Greenwich in South London for a few months. I had good friends who kept me going through that time. On my birthday my friends came out to where I was sleeping at midnight, brought me a cake and stayed with me overnight. read more →

"It was extremely cold being winter and it rained most of the night. I could not sleep at all. It is quite scary especially being in a foreign country. I was also still in a lot of shock, tired, and just trying to work out what I was going to do. My mind and heart were a complete mess." read more →

‘Skeete Effect’

“Being homeless was a new thing for me – confusing, scary, up in the air basically. Trust was out the window – I didn’t trust anyone anymore. My feelings towards everything changed. It’s a different world out there – at the end of the day it’s scary and dangerous.” read more →

"NSNO helps so many people – I’ve never been helped by people who take such an interest in your wellbeing. One of the staff members told me she’d felt so relieved with the outcome and had a feeling that she’d actually helped someone that needs it. I love helping people in need and I’d love to do the kind of work that people do at NSNO full time." read more →
