Daniela is Who?

Hello, My name is Daniela Jurado. I am 17 years-old and I am a Senior at Farragut Career Academy. I live in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest side of Chicago. I love to let people know that I am a teen mother. I am not ashamed of that because my daughter is a part of me and she makes me who I am today. I like to learn new things and that is why I like this Journalism Class. I am learning new things as well as expanding my writing skills. It's a great oppurtunity for me as a mother especially to get as much knowledge as possible. This summer I am an intern in the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization. It's a non-profit organization that focuses on healing community problems and informing the community about issues as well as how we can fix these issues in our community. I love my job I love what I do. I was volunteering at the organization before and I love the movement. I like exposing my daughter to these things as well because she's in a healthy environment.

LVEJO found out that 20% of federal funding goes to public transit and 80% goes to… Continue

The Altgeld Gardens Devastation

A very personal impact on my life was seeing the place on a Landfill. I am reffering to Altgeld Gardens. This place made me realize what conditions people live in. I wouldn't imagine how living on a landfill can be. I complain about Little Village being bad, but this place made me thankful that I have a little corner store where I can buy me an apple. These people have no grocery stores and they have tons of open space, but its contaminated. There has been community workers and organizers just… Continue
