Pomona has grown so much! I moved to this city my 7th grade year and I was always the shy kid. I was always quiet and did not really pay attention to people around me. My first day of school, I had people trying to talk to me! It was crazy. I never experienced that in my past city. Though, I moved here because my parents were able to afford the cheap houses. I have noticed the same atmosphere appear in Pomona as to those middle schoolers reaching out to me. The activities such as beautification, providing schools with chrome books, and emphasizing the power education holds is truly remarkable. I’m proud to say that I will be graduating from a Pomona school in hopes of furthering my education and coming back to empower and motivate the next generation as it did with me!

When I grew up in the city of Pomona I witnessed gang violence. A lot of my friends joined gangs and I chose not to follow their footsteps. I would love to see more gang prevention programs and more community policing in low income areas of the city. Community policing will help develop a relationship with the citizens of those areas and with the Police. People will trust police officers more vice versa. Also these programs should expand in the school system using former gang members in order for them to reach out the youth. I would love to see a change in my city because it truly breaks my heart seeing innocent children being exposed to gang violence. Even though gang violence has dipped, there's still more work to do.
I was raised here since the first grade and have fallen in love with it. From the drive-in movie theater to the home of Cal poly Pomona, this is a town you can call home. I am currently a rising high school junior at Pomona high and I love the memories I have created here. In downtown Pomona, there is an event on Saturdays where they hold free events where you can view the different museums or even do some shopping in the night market that they hold. In addition to the many different events, there is also an art walk that many of the high schoolers and artists from the area join in and show off their talents. It's amazing walking down the street and seeing what someone could do with a stick of chalk and some pavement. There is also 1 more thing that Pomona has up its sleeve; That it is home to the Iconic L.A county fair that is held every year. It is perfect for everyone in different ages by providing many different rides, deep-fried delectables, and cool displays.
