Los Angeles, USA

Peter spent time with his brother-in-law Kevin Lum in South Central L.A., where Kevin was a middle school teacher. Kevin wanted him to see another side of LA, far from the glamour of Hollywood. In a class of 13 and 14 year-olds, some 75 per cent Kevin’s students had seen someone shot. Peter found it intense. “There’s poverty and big fast food franchises everywhere. That’s what people eat. I found South Central a depressing place, oddly reminiscent of Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. Very alien. Very different to Brisbane. You feel like you’re in a gangster movie but five minutes’ drive later, you’re in Malibu.” Find out who Peter meets here.
