I love Hollywood in all of its glorious colors. The people are as vibrant as the lights at night scrolling across marquees and lighting up Hollywood. Walking the streets of Holywood on ANY given day is like playing the lead in your very own movie. Sometimes it's comedy, sometimes it's a little romance, maybe a little sad and of course, it wouldn't be Hollywood without your daily dose of Drama! If there were anything I could change on the streets of Hollywood, it would be to see the streets free of the homeless people and by free I mean, tucked nicely and safely in a home, warm and fed.

I'm a current student at STEM Academy of Hollywood, I'm a senior. Hollywood is famous for it's walk of fame. And you can get a good view of the Hollywood sign.What I like about Hollywood is the area, everybody is friendly, everything is easy to access. The neighbor hood is quite during the day. I never have seen anything bad happened in Hollywood. Something that I will want to see different in Hollywood is more homeless shelters by adding more shelters it can decrease the amount of homeless people in Hollywood especially and help homeless people have a home and provide them with their necessities.
A resident of Hollywood for 10 years, I can tell you that this city has its perks and its downfalls. You can take in beautiful views of the city, visit historic landmarks, dine at amazing restaurants and party the night away at the various clubs. Everything is within walking distance, and its location is central to everywhere you need to go. However, have your wits about you when walking around, as certain corners can be dangerous. It's loud, crowded and filled with traffic, but this city has more positives than negatives. It's exciting, fresh, young, fun and to me, quite majestic. You learn to grow thick skin and a have a hard head. You learn to be wise and cautious. This city is where I found both my courage and my soul, and I wouldn't trade all the hardships I've gone through here for anything. Hollywood really is the city of dreams!
