Margarita Lopez NYCHA.

My cousin, Jeffrey Williams, created and presented this PowerPoint as a project for his English class. (He got an A!!!) For all of our friends and family that weren't able to make it to the presentation, I wanted to put it online, so you could still see it. He did a great job speaking about how Margarita Lopez has benefitted NYCHA! Enjoy!
