Im Tatiana Franklin, a person who refuses to become a statistic under the negative views of “today’s” teens. I’m from Chicago, the Windy City whose wind has blown us into deep depression and stereotypes. Intellectual intelligence is a main trait that carries me on the shallow waters of self destruction. I want to dig deep into the depression forced upon society through the criminal aspect. The media is missing a voice: the victim’s voice. I would like to change Chicago media by surpassing negativity, displaying the freedom of speech and showing all that starts negative does not end negative. I want to show that what we do in life echoes in eternity and bravery doesn’t shine in the light if fear is hidden in the shadows.
