Gastro Sos, 22 and from Guyana, sits in his blue room after smoking. He lives with his cousin in his grandfather’s house in Brooklyn.

He hopes to be a millionaire before 25 by art working. His dream is to be a model and an artist. He wants to be different from others, so he always pays attention to clothes and appearances. 

Now, his job is food delivery. He gets orders in the APP, then buy the food in the restaurant and delivers it to the customers. He usually works 10am-2pm every day.
