Living in South Bend Indiana has been a building ground for me I am from the south side of Chicago. I come from a low-income family in a low-income area, where crime is very high. In South Bend it's not so much crime but it's a lot of racist people maybe because I'm so deep in to Indiana. I've experienced a lot of racial comments and treatments while living in South Bend other than that South Bend has been good.

The area where I live at is very peaceful and calm. I've lived in this area practically my whole life and have had good memories. South Bend is a good community and I would live here again because of the atmosphere.
