I am a young Chicago media maker. When it comes to Chicago’s youth, we rarely have a say—in this world and even our communities While working with Real Chi Youth/FSM over the summer I gained a lot of knowledge on the struggles that our youth have to go through on a daily basis. In Chicago, the youth are portrayed more in a negative manner than a positive one. In order to change peoples views on the youth, we have to find ways to get our voices heard. I plan on achieving this goal through the media I create in FSM this year. I plan on incorporating the skills and experiences that I’ve gained over the summer to help me with future projects. This time around I look forward to focusing and learning more about the positive aspects of our youth.
