    I moved here as a child with my family. The only thing I find attractive about the area is the fact that most of my extended family live in this area. Overall day to day life is fairly depressed and uneventful, jobs opportunities are low, wages for jobs are lower middle class scale, and it seems like crime & drug use is ever rising. I am looking to get out of this area, get a great education, and experience the world beyond this area.
