20 diverse personalities – Canadian celebrities and influencers of music, food and fashion, as well as successful alumni of Eva’s Initiative for Homeless Youth – share candid personal stories of how homelessness has touched their lives, how being “different” has shaped them.
Similar in mood and authenticity to the thought-provoking online series “Humans of New York”, I am Eva offers rich, authentic glimpses into the lives of the storytellers. Conveyed through thoughts, words, moments of pause, gestures, wit and laughter, each vignette exposes dare, passion and compassion, as resolve shines through.
Each vignette is unique, the challenges faced, the storyteller’s personal style, how he or she moves and lives. Collectively, the 20-episode series is a testament to the different faces, depth and breadth of youth homelessness today.
