Throughout this experience I met many people with interesting stories to share. One story in particular caught my attention and stood out above all. I was walking down a street looking for people to survey and this man, who we will name Abe, came up to me and asked me what the LA Promise Zone was about. I explained the premise of this program and asked if he was willing to fill out a survey.
This picture caught my attention because this is an area where people have different types of opinions. Some people think that doing this survey is not something that will help any of the communities out, therefore, they do not take the survey. On the other hand, there are some people that want to learn more about the L.A Promise Zone and are willing to help out us out by taking the survey and they start sharing stories with some of us. Recently a couple shared their story of how they became homeless and what are some struggle that they have been going through these past five months.
This picture shows one aspect of Koreatown. This is one of the most busiest street in the neighborhood and as it shows it has buildings that have been recently built. Inside that building there’s a plaza where shops are also located and overall it’s a very occupied area. Unfortunately I was not able to take a picture, but if I did have the opportunity a couple of blocks down you would see street vendors trying to make a living out of what they do.
