Episode 1: Jacobo

In 1997, Social Psychology Researcher Arthur Aron conducted a study on human connection.

Almost 20 years later it became popularized as The 36 Questions That Lead To Love.

So here in Milwaukee, we chose 8 strangers from two of our longest streets to answer these questions — on camera.

It’s time to meet your neighbor, and maybe even love them too.

88Nine Presents: National & North

Produced by: Laura Kezman and Nate Imig

All music in the series by: Q The Sun

National & North is brought to you by Educators Credit Union.

For our first episode, we invite you to meet Jacobo Lovo.

At the age of nine, Jacobo immigrated to the United States as a Nicaraguan refugee and made his home on Milwaukee’s south side. After spending 16 years as an art teacher at Bruce-Guadalupe Community School, Jacobo was recently named the Managing Artistic Director of Latino Arts, Inc.

 

We must take ownership of our own actions. By taking ownership, you can create positive change, not only within yourself, but also with others around you.

To get to know Jacobo even more deeply, click the players below.  He shares answers to two more personal questions not heard in the video.
