Philly Youth Radio is excited to present this season’s audio stories! Since January, our students have been working hard. We asked them to think about what a sanctuary means to them. Is it a place to relax and recharge? What can threaten a sanctuary? Finally, what is your sanctuary? Through an intensive collaboration between students and radio experts, our youth radio apprentices learned to record, log tape, write a script, voice, and finally edit their individual audio stories. Here are the results!
Thien To is a high school senior and a big sister to two siblings. She’s having trouble holding on to her sanctuary.
Cavhanah Baht T’om is a high school junior with a hectic life. Clark Park is where she goes to relax and recharge.
Shayla Torres is a high school senior and a returning Philly Youth Radio student. She’s going to college next year but that means she’ll have to leave her grandparents behind.
Nyseem Smith is a 17-year-old junior at Benjamin Franklin High School. Besides Philly Youth Radio, theres another after-school program in North Central Philadelphia where hes been spending a lot of time.
