The Youth Voices student producers created digital murals of their neighborhood and the places that are meaningful to them. Each mural contains 3 to 4 hot spots and a brief description below of these places as well as some information on their experience in Youth Voices. Click on the image at the bottom to view the mural.
My mural includes Franklin High School where I spend a lot of time working on leadership events, especially senior events. My second hot spot is Sycamore Park where I go workout on the machines with my younger brother. The third hot spot on my mural is the Audubon Center where I enjoy hiking up to Peanut Lake, My last hot spot is Debs Park where I can also hike to Peanut lake and I have BBQ's at the park with my family.
Hopefully, the general public will begin to see and appreciate the historic places in Highland Park. I feel like I'm barely starting to know the community and I've been enjoying and will continue to enjoy learning more about it. You can eat at amazing restaurants, work out at parks, take hikes at the Audubon Center, and go to art studios.
My experience in Youth Voices was hard because I had to balance other things as well. But overall, it was worth it because I learned about different software and applications and I learned a lot about my community.
