Pop Star Halsey, who was a speaker at End Youth Homelessness Gala Dinner spoke that when she was a teen and had no money, she considered prostitution as a means to survive and earn money.
When Halsey was 14 years old she had a pretty rough childhood. She did not have any money to pay for her next meal and she lived on the streets. She added ” i once had only $9 in my bank account, and i used it to buy a 4 red-bulls so that i can stay up all night, because its better to not sleep, rather than sleeping on a random street and getting raped or murdered”. She also added “It wasn’t because I did something bad. It wasn’t because something was wrong with me, and it wasn’t because my parents didn’t love me, because they loved me very much. But a series of unfortunate circumstances led me to be in that position, and it can happen to absolutely anyone”
Halsey made her debut in singing at the age of 19, and her string of bad luck finally came to an end. Halsey is a big provider at the End Youth Homelessness which provider shelter and food for teen homeless kids in the US. She feels any other kid should not go through what she had to go through in her teens.
