As a teenager born and raised in Chicago, I believe our stories are always coated negatively. I would like to shed light upon all different stances and ensure no voice is left behind. The minority voice is what motivates me to tell stories of the stereotyped youth. Through stories about CPS high school/college graduation rates, I would like yo prove the negative perspectives of others wrong and show that Chicago youth really are the future of Chicago.
