The city was great and welcoming. I went to visit some family and felt right at home. The food was great and the stores were amazin as well.

What I love most about living in El Paso, TX is a combination of our beautiful historical buildings along with our breath taking scenery. We have the most fascinating mountains and breath taking sunsets that allow us to live unforgettable moments daily. In El Paso we coexist with our neighboring city/country Juarez, MX which makes our culture a unique mixture of two authentic worlds. Like everything in life, there is room for improvement and one I would like to see in our city is the opportunities to attend and finish college. Although many of us obtain degrees we are still very behind in this country and would love to see our culture grow and excel with the rest of the country. I am proud to be from El Paso and with minor improvements I believe we can do commendable things together.

I like El Paso I really do. Just that popular opinion is to hate it.
