My name is Alyssa Chavez and this is my first time with Real Chi Youth. I like to tell stories that are relatable and hit close to home because they allow me to get more in depth with the story. Chicago media does well to get a good spectrum of stories, so they are not only about what is going wrong in Chicago but there are also stories that inspire and motivate people. I think Chicago media could do a better job of getting a vast perspective of citizens in Chicago so that more points of view can be heard. My favorite things about Chicago are the diversity and the people. The diversity in Chicago makes me proud to live here because it means we are accepting of all race and cultures. The people in Chicago can be really friendly and helpful if you’re lost, but still be wary because not all of them are friendly.
