Producer, "Beacons of Hope," Los Angeles
Bobby Dvoran, a producer for the “Beacons of Hope” documentary, grew up in South Side Chicago, one of the neighborhoods now at the center of Believe ChicagoSM. As he grew up, Dvoran made the choice to leave Chicago, go see the world, and do bigger and better things. But as he’s come back home and gotten to know the community leaders who are changing his old neighborhood, he’s inspired by the people who took a different path than him. People, the beacons of hope, who chose to reintegrate themselves back into these neighborhoods in a positive way, so that they could make a difference and pass those positive values to the future generations of Chicago in hopes of building a path to permanent change.
