"One [negative news] story doesn't represent the people of Oakland. They need to be here to experience what it is."


"Working and and loving the sun."


"Living in Oakland is alot more than it's cracked up to be... on the positive side."


"I just moved back from LA and this is what I missed. You got the Oak-Landers who will always let you know who they are."


"I love it here. I feel like I'm surrounded by so much love and community."


"When I first started working here, people never said hi. But now they're mellowed out and now they say hi to me."
