The place I was raised has been deemed a “ghetto,” and “disgusting” area. Growing up, I didn’t see that and I still don’t. I wanted to capture the pieces and places of my neighborhood that go beyond those negative stereotypes while sharing my own experiences here.
Overall, I love my neighborhood and I am proud of it. I grew up here and I have witnessed it change through the years. I made friends and family without even knowing it, and I love that. My neighborhood means more than what it may appear to be, and until you actually live here and witness daily life, you will not understand that.
