Walking with Trevlyn Kennedy through Regent Park, it feels like she knows everyone. The vibrant young woman spots friends in the park, on the boardwalk, at a community centre — stopping for a hug, pausing for a chat.

“This community is all about the people. It’s like a reciprocal love. It’s like a net that’s given,” says the 21-year-old University of Toronto student and spoken word artist. “I don’t know how to describe it.”

On a hot June afternoon, she’s taking the Star on a tour of her neighbourhood — past old apartment buildings, towering modern condos, and colourful public artwork — sharing her memories and hopes for a community that’s been changing before her eyes for the past eight years.
