Stranger 45/100 – Dante

Stranger-45–Dante.jpgI met our next stranger as he was heading to work at a local bakery.

Meet Dante.

What do you do in your free time? “See my son, with my Mom, family… family time man. When I’m not working, I’m with my people.”

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Take advantage of opportunities that come to you. If you see an open door, take it. Don’t just look at it and go down the hallway.”

Do you have a philosophy on life? “Family matters. That’s it really. Just look out for your people you know what I’m saying?”

What would you do if you had a million dollars? “Give it to my mom.”

How would your friends describe you? “Calm. I’m always happy. It’s just something that I’ve always been like that.”

What are your goals? “I’d like to own my own pet shop. If I save enough, maybe I can get a loan, get enough money, open up my own store, get a little property. I’m an animal person. I love dogs. Dogs are good companions and good for people, period. They heal.”

Thank you Dante for being part of my 100 Strangers Project.

Technical Notes: This picture was taken with natural light towards the end of the day. There was a bright reflection of light coming from a building across the street.
