Darelle Brown is a participant in Remix Your Life, an arts program run by Youth Radio. Brown grew up in Oakland, and he imagines what it's like to be a rose pushing it's way up through his city's soil.

"Flowers have survived all different types of bad weathers and obstacles life has to throw at them – and somehow still stay strong and manage to blossom into a beautiful rose flower."
