As someone who lived in the housing projects for 8 years after losing our apartment to a fire,  I know how important it is for a positive summer experience.  Before NYSP, our summers consisted of boredom and several negative activities as we found “things” to do around our neighborhood as our parents tried to make ends meet.  With NYSP, I feel as if I was given a better life because I was able to attend the summer camp and get first-time experiences in many areas like new sports, new food, positive support staff, college campus, new friends and so much more.  There are so many disadvantaged youth in our city that will not have access to these types of experiences and will continue to be engulfed in a negative view of our city.  Therefore, I want to help provide a break in that cycle and provide opportunities to our youth of Lowell so they can reach their potential and create a new more positive normal for their lives. I believe with the work being done with LYLP, we will be able to start on this journey to achieve this goal and create a positive legacy of leadership. - Sam Hor - LYLP Leadership team
