Susan Taylor Looking back at my ACM Urban Studies experience, I realize just how much I learned in those few short months. Sure, I learned the CTA like the back of my hand, found great hangout spots I still visit when I'm in the area, and learned that there are 77 areas in the city of Chicago. What I learned most, however, was that it doesn't take a "superhero" to create positive change. The community members and leaders I met during the program amazed me, and I still find myself recalling the lessons I learned from them. I remember that they were just people like me, and that I can create change to help improve the lives of both myself and the people around me.
