Street Level

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2007 at 7:24 AM

A (semi) weekly look at those who live and work on the streets of Music City.

Today's Street Citizen: Trina

Age: Mid 30's

Spotted: Murfreesboro Pike, in the Burger King parking lot across from WKRN news office.

Job description: "I think that I'm helping truckers relax." (Gestures at a nearby motel.) "Mostly I just need cash."

Where she sleeps: Shares a South Nashville apartment with a couple of other women and her kids.

Personal Hero: "Are you kidding?"

Favorite thing about Nashville: "I like the weather"

If she had 10 minutes with mayor Bill Purcell, she would: "Tell him how hard it is out here. I try to stay on my feet but, you know I use sometimes, and I feel like that just sucks me back to where I'm at."

Saddest thing she's seen on the street: "I once saw a girl get her face beat so bad that I didn't recognize her after. She was young, too."
