I love living in Oakland. I feel safe and would like to remain apart of the community. The people are friendly and the community is involved in the social upbringing of the youths.
Living in Chicago is beautiful but as a youth everyday I feel I could possibly lose my life due to all the gang violence that takes place here. Its scary to think that as a child living here you may not make it to see the age 18, or even see college. Not even just that we are labeled one of the murder capitols of America. People don't even call Chicago by its name, most people call it "Chi-raq" because of all the deaths. For me that is very scary to live in, and everyday I can't wait to get out of here. I love my hometown of course but I'd love to see it improve. I'd love to see government officials stand up and make our city great again. Change is all Chicago needs.
Not the greatest place, especially for a family of four the space was small.
