My name is Nory Grijalva, I am a junior at Illinois State University majoring in Social Work. I am a proud Latina who resides in Pilsen, the heart of Chicago. I can’t see myself anywhere else but Chicago. Chicago is a beautiful city which is extremely diverse and where there are many stories untold. I want to focus and give a voice to those who are underrepresented in our city. Chicago media needs to focus on the actual struggles of our people and shine a light on what us Chicagoans really need the world to know. Our youth voice is extremely important because we are the future. We have gone through struggles and plenty of experience that can help future generations.
