When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the devastation did not discriminate by economic class. The storm wiped out both homes and livelihoods of most residents.
For those who have dedicated their lives to their community, like police officers and healthcare workers, the difficultly of meeting these challenges only increased even while their own lives were upended.Take Zuma, for example. Zuma lives and works as a police officer in Guanica, Puerto Rico. She is desperate to rebuild her community. But with electricity in short supply and some areas still in need of access to clean water, the restoration process has slowed significantly. Nonetheless, Zuma has continued to serve and protect her community to the best of her ability.
