How to use bunk in a sentence?

  1. Actress Gianna Simone:

    I went from one hell to another, many nights, they’ll place you with whoever has a house open. I’ve been in crazy houses, housing projects. I was with a woman who wanted babies. So I had to sleep in a baby bunk one night. It was scary. I didn’t know who I was going to end up with. I didn’t know if there were any men in the house that were going to rape me. I bounced around because most people wanted young kids… I was rejected out of many houses.
