Helping people help themselves
In six years, she’s gone from country music neophyte to global megastar. In this edition we examine the rise and rise of Taylor Swift.
PLUS: An exclusive INSP interview with Pope Francis, on his vision of a world without poverty.
Also in this issue:
An anonymous writer tells a personal, and poignant, story of pokies addiction; Ricky French confronts an uncomfortable number of snakes; Sarah Blasko lyrically falls in love; and, as part of our special Pope Package, Rome correspondent Josephine McKenna tells the story of homelessness in Vatican City.
Starring in the Vendor Profile this edition is Adrian from Sydney. We have Streetsheet contributions from brothers Matt and Scott HS from Sydney, including a photo of Matt with a John Wayne statue; Alfred from Brisbane; Daniel K from Adelaide; and Alarna L from Melbourne. We also have a photograph from The Big Shift event, held last month in Sydney to raise awareness for our Women’s Subscription Enterprise.
