Daniel Lopez is 16 years old and he is going to be a Junior at Lansingburgh High School. Daniel likes to play football and dancing. He applied for a summer youth job and he was placed at the Media Sanctuary Alliance and has had a lot of fun. His concern was garbage and we received 12 black city garbage cans but couldn’t place them on the streets. So he painted two garbage cans that are at Freedom Square. They look very nice now everyone will throw their garbage away in the first beautifully painted trash cans in Troy. Also Danny and Amarie would make smoothies everyday and they were delicious. They would always rap about the smoothies or anything in general. The Sanctuary gave Danny his own independence and character that he will carry with him throughout his life as he makes a good change to the community.
