“My first day surveying for the Watts Community Studio was not easy. I thought people were going to be more open to us and answer the survey, but a lot of the people I approached were hesitant. In my opinion, they actually looked scared, which I think should change. If we all come together, our voices will be heard. I’m very happy that I get to be a part of history. Needless to say, we all are building a better future for upcoming generations.”
