Big Ben on a cloudy day in London
Guest Blogger, November 17, 2021

In the summer of 2019, before Covid came and our lives changed, my family and I went to England for a vacation. Our first stop on the tiny island across the sea was London. When most people think of London, they think of the red buses, Big Ben, London Bridge, tea, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye.

There’s hardly any greenery in Koreatown. The parks in Koreatown are sparse and run down. There aren’t many places where the community can really come together and bond, which is why a community garden is a great way to meet new people and learn how rewarding it is to grow your own food.

First off I want to start this post by talking about why housing issues matter so much to me. As a person who has lived in California all their life, I have seen firsthand the consequences of the housing crisis in this state. Parks I used to walk in are now tent cities for the homeless.

Lila Perl is a sophomore high school student and volunteer at her local public library. She hopes that by sharing her experiences over the last 2 years, other teens will be excited to participate in the many projects and programs that each library hosts.

Many facets of daily life have been harshly affected by the spread of COVID-19. People are losing their jobs, most major countries have seen some form of strict stay at home order, and there has been a mass movement onto online communication platforms.
