Each week, participants in La Familia’s Youth Voice program are asked to take one photo of their neighborhood in order to capture something that is important or relevant to their daily life.
Youth Viewpoints: Photos of my neighborhood
I chose this location because I feel that this is one of the better parks in the neighborhood. It’s clean and when there’s light normally kids would be out playing.
Back in middle school, this was the spot. When there were no worries. It’s crazy. I used to think KFC chicken was the best thing out there, but its disgusting now. You really don’t see yourself aging until these moments. When you really sit and see the difference in your past. I mean, I used to walk by here everyday, now I’m driving past. Age is limited, but recognizing things like this are timeless.
