La Perla, Puerto Rico

La Verdadera Perla

Graffiti, skate park, hood-like community, passion,what else do you think of when you see this picture?
This was taken in La Perla, Puerto Rico, home to some of the most beautiful and talented people on this planet; and I’m not taking about looks. La Perla breeds passion, determination, love, and not just the wrongly judged “gangsta.”
Home to stars like Calle 13 and De La Ghetto, La Perla is pro active about bettering the lives of it’s youth-filled streets. El Estudio D’Oro is just one push towards growth and harmony. This free-of-charge studio welcomes all age groups to express their emotions through music. Ohh music, how you take the ugly and create the beautiful…

I pray for La Perla and stand proud by its people and its efforts to progress. There is nothing more beautiful to me than a diamond in the rough, or should I say a perla in the rough?
