His parents both work and have put Thomas and his siblings through college. He doesn&#39;t know what it&#39;s like to feel hungry or unable to pay his expenses. He&#39;s here at the poverty simulation to get a glimpse of how life could be if he wasn&#39;t so lucky.<br /><br />&quot;I&#39;m kind of scared about what could happen and about how I&#39;m going to feel to get turned down in situations that I&#39;ve never been turned down in before,&quot; says DeCastra<br /> Thu, 18 Nov 2010 21:14:19 +0000 Emily McCord 2254 at http://wyso.org University Of Dayton Helps Students Understand Poverty
