Leadership Council

Lynda Lopez

A recent graduate of Prosser Career Academy, I am just starting my college journey at the University of Chicago. A few months ago, I just so happened to stumble upon the “Chain of Change” website while doing some casual browsing. As a budding journalist, it seemed like a great way to further my writing and media skills. I was most attracted to the way in which young teenagers are giving up their free time to make videos about issues that matter to them the most.

I can’t claim to be the most vocal or most prominent anti-violence proponent, but I can say that it is something that has affected my life in one way or another. Whether it be through cyber stalking or physical attacks, violence is interconnected in all our lives. Through my involvement with the Chain of Change, I hope to learn a little bit more about the nuts and bolts that makes Chicago grow and move.
