Summary
Becky Blanton planned to use her van for a year to travel and see the country, but when depression set in and her freelance job ended, her camping trip turned into homelessness. In this intimate TEDTalk, Blanton describes her experience of becoming one of America's working poor, living in her van in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Blanton has worked in the field of journalism for more than 22 years as a reporter, photojournalist, and editor. Mashable calls her "a seasoned freelance writer who broke all the rules of social media," and Tim Russert selected one of her essays to be included in his last book
