    I moved away from Breaux Bridge to the city of Dallas thinking that it would better because it's a big city. That most definitely wasn't the case because you couldn't really be social. You couldn't just walk down the street and say hey to someone like you could in my small town. Living in a small town enhances your social skills and your understanding of people. It helps you to be able to communicate with many different types of people's. Also the saying it takes a village to raise a child comes in to play because if my mom had to go to work i could just go over to my neighbors. it helps your work ethic, because you'll have to go out and get what you need on your own. When you're working to get it on your own you get it by any means necessary!

    I have lived in Breaux Bridge for 18 years now. It is a quiet and semi-busy city, bustling with cajun culture. The downtown area is a great place to seek antique shops or go to an old-fashioned cafe. Breaux Bridge is known as the Crawfish Capital of USA, and we have pride in our title. Each year, Breaux Bridge hosts the Crawfish festival and many from outside of LA come to join or visit us to have a great time!

    As a child, my neighborhood was not always the best. There was people hanging out on the wnd of streets, obvious drug dealings, numerous fights, and loud music all the time. Over time, all of the nonsense dies down. I can truely say that it is now a peaceful neighborhood. You don't have to walk outside feeling like you have to wear a bullet proof vest. My neighborhood has transformed into a worry free place.
