May. 25, 2018 / By , , and

VoiceWaves interviewed gubernatorial candidates John Chiang, Delaine Eastin and Antonio Villaraigosa at the Building Our Future: A Forum on Children with California’s Gubernatorial Candidates held at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College on May 15, 2018. The candidates, who are running as democrats, spoke on educational inequity, free college, access to tech and more. (Note: Democratic candidate Gavin Newsom and republican candidates Travis Allen and John Cox were also invited, but did not attend the forum.)


The VoiceWaves team also interviewed a couple of young students. As attendees to this event, they spoke about obstacles in public schools, why they attended the event and which governor candidate they think can help improve their future.

For the entire forum, watch here.

I'm 17 years old, and I'm a senior at Long Beach Polytechnic High School. After graduating, I will be attending college locally to major in journalism. I've loved writing since I was a little girl, writing exaggerated and elaborate stories about the people and things in my life. I'm an introvert so my free time is spent watching my faves on Netflix.

Smith mostly publishes as a video journalist, but also writes, photographs, as well. M strives to get the best camera shots and offer readers and viewers a full experience by submitting a package deal of photos, a story, and a video to complement each article.
