I am proud of the area in which I partially grew up in. It has allowed me to view the African American culture in a different aspect. However, it has also allowed my to see the struggle of my people as well. The living conditions aren't great, but I had my mother and brother (my family); and we loved and protected each other. As I've grown I would like to be that intricate force to make a difference in my community; starting with the youth. If I can keep one youth out of harms way and provide them with guidance to a positive way of life; then my life has served a fulfilling purpose.

Crime and safety in my community is stable. Although the police station is within a 4 block radius, things still tend to happen. I would like to see regular patrol in my area throughout the day. Although with the brutality of unarmed African American men by police offices, makes it hard for the community to respect them. I believe there should be more town hall meetings and community involvement to bring us all together on one accord.
The government in general does not seem to care very much about the exact neighborhood/surrounding area of where I live.
