He doesn't know what it's like to feel hungry or unable to pay his expenses. He's here at the poverty simulation to get a glimpse of how life could be if he wasn't so lucky.
"I'm kind of scared about what could happen and about how I'm going to feel to get turned down in situations that I've never been turned down in before," says DeCastra
