In my 19 years living here, all I could say is I've learned a lot. I've learned how my life is not normal. I've seen people been shot in front of me. I've seen dealers, I've seen all the bad. But it's part of life. I can't change my current status but I'm on my way to improving it. Education and the ambition to learn and to succeed are key. And that's what got me out of here and I now live in the beautiful and safe city of Irvine. It's a whole new world out there. But looking back, I'm not ashamed of where I come from, it's what made me.
I will love to live in this area again because it is an open community, neighbors are friendly, no known gangs, crime reduction, close to community college, kindergarten school, High school, and restaurants.
