Community Connections: Meet Zechariah D.

Zechariah D.

My name is Zechariah D., I'm beginning the seventh grade at Jefferson Middle School. I live in Long Beach but I go with my mom to Leimert Park on the weekends and that's how I came to join Departures Youth Voices and learn about a lot of cool stuff. I've done a couple of activities in Leimert park. The first thing I did was take drum lessons at World Stage with my drum teacher Mr. Cornel Fauler.

I"m really interested in sports. My favorite sport is football. I sometimes play football in Leimert Plaza Park on the little open grass patch. That's about all the activities I currently do in Leimert Park.

I'm really interested In Departures and I hope this won't be my last class with the program.

Take a look at Zechariah's work with Youth Voices.
