If you ever are approached by a person asking you to take a picture with the words #We All Live Here, you will have been asked to take part in a global art project. A couple of the founders of the project, Rich Alapak and Jake Goldstein spread their positive messages about commitment to the community in Pat DiFilippo’s Mass Media Writing class at Oak Lawn Community High School. Rich Alapak and Jake Goldstein use technology to create business opportunities and to expand their philanthropic interests. Rich started as a web designer in college and founded several successful Internet companies. Recently, he worked as a Vice President for a large social media company Tumblr before turning to the #We All Live Here project. Goldstein, who is a lawyer by profession, has a strong background in leadership and philanthropic endeavors. Oak Lawn substitute teacher and class of 09’ alumnus Philip Armstrong set up the thought provoking exchange with some OLCHS potential future journalists.
