Hello! I’m Carly Wipf and I created this video to give you a glimpse of what it is like to live in Tahoe Park, the neighborhood where I grew up. Many residents of Tahoe Park live modest middle class lives and enjoy the luxury of being centrally located. Public education, places to eat, and commercial areas are close enough to walk or bike. The true gem of the area however, is Tahoe Park itself which has much to offer, including a swimming pool for the summer, a basketball court, a running track, and more. It is a great place for people to play with their kids and interact with others in the area. Although the neighborhood might be old, and the houses small, the community spirit keeps Tahoe Park young.
My journey with AccessLocal.tv began in October of 2012, and ever since it has challenged me in so many ways. Although my time with Access Local is ending, I couldn’t be more happy about all of the things that I have learned. I don’t regret a second of my time spent in the program, and hope that the new batch of correspondents get as much our of the program as I did.
