Bienvenidos a Nueva Zelanda

Close to three weeks have passed since I first arrived in New Zealand, and unfortunately now is the first time I’ve decided to sit down and record my thoughts and experiences. This beautiful land of uninhabited islands, small towns and overpriced food is extremely hard to characterize. In Auckland, specifically, you have an incredibly diverse population that exemplifies the “salad bowl” philosophy.

LA mayoral candidates to meet in South Central

Looking forward to hearing what the candidates have to say about reducing poverty, homelessness and crime in our neighborhood. Rather, looking forward to hearing fluff about how South LA is turning corners and growing with the help of USC at this PR-stunt. Get ya facts straight! We are the poorest, most violent district of the city. The people of this region need help from the top.
