Oscar Mendoza is a native New Yorker of 22 years. He was raised in a neighborhood named Inwood which is located at the north tip of Manhattan.
While growing up, he never thought about his parents being apart or getting a divorce, they have always been together as a happy family. He is now fending for himself in this big, cruel, unfair world and at the same time trying to create something that his family, especially his son, will be proud of. His future is looking bright but only if he makes the right decisions.
