Meet Hector

I hope to pursue my dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur and creating my own skateboarding brand. I want to determine my own success and take charge of my own future. Even though I dream of one day escaping the “hood,” I love the street culture. When it’s the only place you’ve known, you learn to love it in its own unique way. This environment has shaped me and inspires me to seek more.

Meet Emma

I’m 15 years old and a 9th grader at West Prep. I really enjoy cooking and the supernatural interests me, too. I would like to study culinary arts at the College of Southern Nevada, hopefully with a few free credits if I can take the culinary classes offered at my high school. Plan B is to attend an institute of metaphysics and study demonology.
