Vivette gets deeply personal as she discusses the “small” setbacks that led to her and her daughter becoming homeless and how she was able to persevere and “get back on her feet”. In addition, Franchesca and Vivette discuss the skyrocketing rent prices in New York City and things teachers can do to make their financial situations better.
