I chose these images because I felt like it went with the quotes I chose from the book “Street Life”. I chose that background because it’s a symbol of Oakland and the place the story takes place is in Oakland. I chose these exact quotes because he specifically tells us how he feels about things going around him, himself, and others. I wanted you guys to see how strong victor is by knowing where he came from and how he was raised and how he is now is such a beautiful transformation. How he can explain his thoughts and feelings about his entire life shows such a humble person.
