    Atlanta is great place to live! It is culturally diverse with a wide variety of restaurants, markets, shops, museums, and outdoor activities. Sports fans can avail themselves to high school, college, and professional sporting events. Employment and entrepreneurial opportunities are varied and continually increasing. Families have their choice of public, private, or charter schools. There are numerous vocational/trade schools , community colleges, and universities for those looking to further their education.

    I have lived in Atlanta for 21 years. This city used to resemble a town, but, with the increase in major corporations calling this city home, the level of activities available are endless! Whether dining, going to the movies, theater, music venues, or attending museums, Atlanta never ceases to offer opportunities for getting out and discovering anything that appeals to all. Shopping is as diverse as the landscape, and the hotels are plentiful. It is truly a wonderful place to visit or call home.

    Atlanta is my home so the experience is something I can't part with. I moved to Colorado only to find myself back in Atlanta a year later. Things like the culture, food, locals, and overall way of life is one of a kind. What I would like to see most of all is more unity. I feels there's still an underlying of division between different groups of people. My church has taken a stand to bridge and a new group called "one," which I'm very proud to be a part of at this time in my life!
