I think what makes this neighborhood special is the fundamental idea of respect. The idea that we have respect for one another here, and understanding that we all have the same vision, but it’s just constructed in different ways based on the culture that you’re from.  I’m able to see what it is that exists within me. I’m able to see that people are able to communicate with each other, wherever you are from, you’re able to come together and focus on one mission, and the mission is to pretty much break us all from the cycle of poverty and to unite.  Right now we work on getting parents in college, getting a lot of parents to see that there’s another option out there, a way to break the cycle of poverty. I’m coming from the hut to living in buildings.
