    My income makes me feel …



    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Aimee Clark, 30, says her income makes her feel “lost” because her and her family have risen up out of poverty, but they’re not living comfortably. “I feel lost because although we are not in poverty anymore we are not financially safe,” she said. “We still live paycheck to paycheck, just not as dire as years before. I feel lost because I can taste the "American Dream" but it's like a tease. I have high hopes for our future, for my future, but it's still in the hope stage. Clark lives in the Denver, Colorado, area.
