In this episode of Audio Revolution, the third in Youth Media Project’s Facing Poverty series, students reflect on their own personal experiences of poverty. Hosts Savannah Chapman and Chloe Espinosa lead listeners through a variety of narratives and interviews set both in Santa Fe and abroad. One student describes how 9/11 caused her family to transition from poor to homeless when she was growing up in New York. Another student explores the challenges of being homeless in Santa Fe and connects listeners to local organizations that offer support to people living on the streets.
As the second installment of Youth Media Project’s Facing Poverty Series, students explored international experiences of poverty alongside local experiences of poverty. Segments range from students at United World College to students at YouthWorks! about diverse topics such as drug addiction and poverty, differences between growing up poor in New and Old Mexico and much more. Hosts Max Kalyani and Sayra Olivares help listeners understand the complexities of each intense and profound personal story. Take a listen!
