What grade are you in and what school do you go to?
I am currently in the 9th grade and I attend Media Arts Entertainment High School.
What's the most important thing to know about you?
I have a huge passion for filmmaking and skateboarding. If it were possible to live off both for the rest of my life, I would be the happiest person.
Where is the first and last place you would take a new visitor in your neighborhood?
I would take a visitor to El Mercadito, which shows a huge part of our culture in Boyle Heights. Then I would take them to any local park to see what goes on in the parks for example baseball, football, and also soccer games. Finally I would take them to Downtown to see how things go by.
What object connects you to your neighborhood? How does it link you to your community?
A skateboard connects me to my neighborhood. It is a way of transportation in my community and skateboarding is part of who I am, without it I feel lost.
