    The area I live (El Cajon) is not the safest area for a family. I moved here around the time I was in middle school and I struggled to feel safe and accepted. San Diego as a whole, is a big, fast-paced city. There is always a lot to do and a lot of variety in terms of restaurants. Now that I am older, I can drive out of El Cajon to experience a better life.

    The neighborhood in is fairly moderate. It is safe enough to walk on the streets ruing the day although ambulance sirens are heard driving by frequently if not every day. If I could choose to live in another location with my mother and siblings I would. The area is crowded and not a place i want m sibling s to be raised.
