Samenvatting

Tired of Being Po is author Tangie Bell's story about her escape from poverty and a world where sexual favors and crime held the only promise of a next meal for herself and her children. A high school drop out, Tangie took to the streets and left Shreveport, Louisiana at the age of 18, setting out to find emotional and financial fulfillment. Soon she fell into the dangerous trap of using her body to acquire life's necessities. After years on the streets, now with three children in tow, Bell found herself living at a residential development center for homeless families with children that require residents to work full time and continue their education. One night Tangie woke up from her sleep crying, shaking, and feeling used and abused. She ran outside to commit suicide with hopes to escape the years of poverty she has known all her life. Something happened that night that changed Bell's life forever. Tired of Being Po is a story turned workbook for those caught in a grip of poverty and government assistance who are looking for ways to begin a better future and break out of the poverty cycle.;The challenges and pressures of everyday life can be overwhelming, especially when you do not have enough to make ends meet. Worrying about poverty changes nothing but exposing it changes everything. Helping others recognize the trap of relying on government handouts or a life of crime to get by has become a big part of her new life. "I am not a celebrity," she says, but I do have something to say," I am Tired of Being Po.
