A New Year a New Reseda
OpEd: By Alexi Chidbachian
As the New Year begins new hopes, ambitions, and renovations begin to occur. People of every age create New Year resolutions in hope of a better year. It’s rare for someone to make a New Year resolution about the city they live in and the people who live there but these teenagers did just that.
“I really hope that Reseda fixes all their roads for a better driving experience”, said 17 year old teenager Camila Freire.
Freire’s main concern for Reseda is for all the streets to be repaved and to have more modernized beautiful buildings and stores. By Reseda living up to these plans and ideas the city’s economy will greatly increase, bringing more business and money flow. As a teenager there’s nothing more crucial for Freire then living in a clean and safe community. A place where she can walk out on the street feeling protected.
Colleen Curtis an 18 year old senior at Reseda High School also believes that the city she lives in should become cleaner and safer. People may think that a teenager can’t help refurbish a city, however those people are wrong. Any one of any age can help beautify a city; whether it’s planting trees at every corner, painting an old building, or picking up trash. Curtis anticipates helping Reseda by cleaning up her school and starting to lead beautification projects at school. By starting these projects numerous teens can come together and help their loving city.
They look forward to seeing a new Reseda flourish in the 2012 year. They also hope that all the renovation plans and ideas the city had last year will finally be put in place. Lets all hope that the New Year brings great transformation, beauty, and happiness to Reseda.
