I'm a senior at the Los Angeles River School. I am loud, confident and out going. Glassell Park is my home. It is close to the L.A. River.

What object connects you to your neighborhood?
A ladle connects me to my community, because not only do I like to cook, I also get together with my family on every special occasion, like Christmas or Thanksgiving, and we make a lot of food and take it down to the men at Home Depot, who are waiting to find a job.
