Our community storytelling project Hear Here also had the chance to visit the ROCK program at Visitacion Valley Middle School to record the stories of young people there.
Eighth grader Pauline Dip told our Hear Here producers about her favorite hobby.
Alvin Kwok is a tutor with ROCK at Visitacion Valley Middle School. He told Hear Here about his family, who has lived in Visitacion Valley since his grandmother first immigrated there from China. She’s been working hard ever since to make a loving home for her family.
