30 Neighbors. 30 Days. will spotlight diverse Pittsburghers in social media and here on PittsburghUrbanMedia.com 

 January 20, Day 1:  

Patricio: “I came from Ecuador to do music, Ecuadorian music with flutes and other instruments. I was traveling around the United States and playing in New York. We decided to buy a car to adventure and explore other places and we came to Pittsburgh... I feel at home here. In Pittsburgh, I have so many friends and people who know me. In the Strip District, they know me.  They yell, ‘Hi, Patricio!’ You never know who is yelling at you! I just smile and say, ’Hi, how are you?’ Even yesterday I was walking in the mall with my kids and someone said, ‘Hi, Patricio.’ My kids asked who he was, but I didn’t remember. But, it is nice.”

Welcoming Pittsburgh is launching 30 Neighbors. 30 Days., in collaboration with PittsburghUrbanMedia.com and other partners, to spotlight stories from diverse Pittsburghers, including those hailing from countries around the globe, transplants from other American cities, and Pittsburgh natives.

Follow the campaign:  www.PittsburghUubanMedia.com, WelcomingPGH on Facebook and Twitter, hashtag #IamPGH. 30 Neighbors. 30 Days. runs January 20 – February 18, 2016.
