I am in the 12th grade and I go to L.A. River School. I like to play sports, and I am competitive. Elysian Valley / Frogtown is the neighborhood I call home. The L.A. River can be found at the bottom of most streets, but not all streets have entrances to the river.

Where is the first and last place you would take a new visitor in your neighborhood?
The first place I would show a new visitor is the river trail, and the last would be the recreation center.

What object connects you to your neighborhood?
My cross country shirt connects me to my neighborhood. I run a lot, and I run at the river, which is really close to me. My school is also named L.A. River, and the cross country team consists of only L.A. River students.
