Day 21 – San Francisco

by Zoe Grunwald


We returned today to the San Francisco Public Library for a discussion about the future of media, generational significance, and specifically about our Generation Z. The discussion with former Dean of Medill Journalism School at Northwestern University, John Levine, brought up points about our generation that I never knew or expected to hear. We also looked toward the future of media with the impact of social media and technology.

After that, we spread out for lunch in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood where we shopped and had fun putting on glitter in a tye-dye shop on the same streets former famous musicians lived on. From there, we traveled to The Castro neighborhood to meet with the Human Rights Campaign at Harvey Milk’s old camera store and have free time. 

We then traveled to different places around San Francisco such as the baseball stadium, Ghirardelli Square, and back to the hotel to take in more of the city. To conclude the day, we ate our last full group meal at Mel’s Diner laughing night away after our last full group reflection. The reflection was sad because we had to say goodbye to our twenty-two day participants, but warming to hear everyone’s reflections on our California journey.
