Vendor Spotlight: Paul Ortiz (Street Roots, Portland USA)

 Street Roots - USA 06 January 2019

Paul Ortiz has put a past of drugs and crime behind him and now earns a living selling Street Roots on the sidewalks of Portland. Being a street paper vendor not only provides an income for Paul, it has also inspired him to attend writing classes organised by Street Roots and build friendships with other vendors. He is compassionate towards the people he shares the streets with, saying, “I give what I got. If I have more than I need, there’s plenty of people out here who can use that.” (563 Words) - By Sam Bouman
