10th Annual We Are Hip Hop Youth Festival
Back in the day when I lived in Brighton Park as a young person, I delivered the newspaper on 40th Place from Albany to California Avenue. Every morning at 5am, I would wake up, prepare my route orders, and deliver to customers. I had the second largest route in the neighborhood. I was able to do this all the way through high school. Not great pay, but it helped with what my family could not provide for me.
