Via Fox 26 News

Unique Parsha has a job at Facebook and is also homeless. 

Parsha says, "I tell people all the time, stop looking at what somebody got and what you see on the outside".
Parsha also runs a non-profit in her spare time, but has been living out of her car since April. 
Except she also has student loans and medical bills. Even with her salary, an apartment can cost more than $2,000 a month in Silicon Valley which is out of reach for her and many others.






"I'm very embarrassed because I don't want to be looked down upon or talked about".
Parsha says until now, she hasn't told her co-workers that she's homeless. It's a matter of pride. 
"They would be shocked that I'm going through that because they would be like 'I see you smiling at work, you appear to be happy. You look normal, you look clean".
Parsha decided that now is the time to start talking about her situation, in the hopes of opening a real dialogue about the high cost of living in the Silicon Valley. 
"I think that companies need to look at the salaries. Are we paying employees enough to survive?"
