Cori Dixon’s beauty surprises, as though no one who’s endured what she has could have eyes so bright.

Unmarred as she seems, Cori, 17, who remembers her first tumultuous years were in Cherry Hill and Woodbury, carries the burdens of having lived much of her life homeless or close to it.

“I feel like a 50-year-old woman, I’ve been through so much,” Cori said. “I just wanted to be a teenager for a while.”

Cori will participate in a conference next month in which young people will discuss homelessness and related issues.
