Something you admire about this organizationAs an artist, I wanted to be able to create a program, specifically a photography one, in the center of my community in South Central for the inner-city and low-income youth to come and learn and express themselves. Through art I will empower the generation to create as a way to build and grow. This is my end goal, and Venice Arts is already doing it.
