Young Chavez

I met eighteen year old Patricia Chavez while she was working at a gas station near San Juan, New Mexico. It was at the end of a long day on the road and this lonely Gas station was where we'd be spending the night, parked in a slipway near the store. Patricia shyly agreed to do an interview when the store closed at 9pm. Please excuse all my "hmmmms" & "ahhhs" that punctuate my questions, I was pretty tired by the time I did this interview. We spoke about her plans for the future, being bucked off a cow and the challenges of being far away from her friend.

I guess its really something that she really have to do. And being far from where she really is ~ something that she needs to sacrifice.
Thanks for sharing.
