    • Sharai, I hadn’t really thought that much about gentrification. In Salt Lake, it’s phrased as something new and uplifting. In this article, https://www.deseretnews.com/article/865596095/Improving-Salt-Lake-City-one-neighborhood-at-a-time.html, about half way through it states, “those who remained behind in a gentrified neighborhood between 2001 and 2009 had higher incomes, and were more likely to have a bachelor’s degree and better credit scores than their counterparts in non-gentrified neighborhoods,” but they didn’t say how long those in the study had been residents. With you piece in mind, it does seem a little convenient -of course the upper class citizens are more likely to have higher credit scores, more education, and higher wages. I believe updating and bringing in new life, but not at the cost of ruining someone else’s.

    • Hi Anna,
      I appreciate your opinion on my article. If I was an outsider to gentrification and class privilege, I would probably be for gentrification but it wouldn’t show justice for middle and lower class people. Do you have anymore questions about my article.

      • Hello Destiny,

        Thank you for commenting on my post. In your comment you asked why I decided to do my shadow box on family. I decided to do my box on family because family has and will be the closest thing to me in life and they are very important to me and I wanted to share my family with everyone else. I will take a look at your work on your blog and leave comments. Again thank you for commenting.

        -Sharai Ward
