Our vendors: Peter (The Big Issue, Perth, Australia)

By Peter L, The Big Issue Australia vendor

I was born in San Francisco, but moved to Perth when I was 10 and lived with a foster family. I like living in Perth but still miss home and my old friends. I love American food and eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I also love soccer and my favourite team is Melbourne Victory. My favourite players are Archie Thompson and Besart Berisha.

I’m hoping to make a trip to the US this year for a few months. I’ll miss my customers whilst I’m away, and will be thinking about The Big Issue team working hard.

We post a story from a vendor each week. Come back next Wednesday to read another. You can find more stories here.
