My name is Pauly and I am going to Korea in November to do work with at risk youth.
A little bit about myself.
I have a past that not many people will be proud of. Over the last six years, I have turned my life around, stepping away completely from the lifestyle that would have left me 6 feet under the ground or behind the bars of a local correctional department. I am pleased to say that my life has been radically changed, free from all forms of addictions except for my love of a good cup of coffee.
I have an ongoing passion in my heart to help young people; young ones that societies usually turn their backs on. I use graffiti art as a tool to connect with youth everyday and use my life story as a testimony to people that are on a similar path as I once was.

We can't put a figure on the value of their lives, and each life matters.
Would you partner with me to make a difference in the lives of these young people?
I am leaving on 1st November and returning on 1st December.
