I was born in El Paso, TX where I have lived for about 15 years of my life. I moved to Arizona my sophomore year in high school which was a very difficult obstacle for me to overcome seeing that I would have to start fresh in a place that I was not used to. El Paso, TX is a small border town of Mexico with not much to do and I realized that when I moved to Arizona.
I have lived in Mesa, Arizona for more than 5 years now and I love every bit of it. There are so many opportunities here that I would have never had the option of taking advantage of in El Paso. Arizona not only has opportunities in the education and employment aspect but also in the traveling.
Arizona is home to one of the greatest wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. Every time I visit the Grand Canyon my breath is taken away and I am left with a refreshed feeling when I leave there. To those that have never had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon, living in Arizona it is only three hours away. I also love the beach and growing up in Texas I was no where close to one. Living in Arizona, you wouldn’t think that the beach is a close drive either, but the beach is about four hours away. Lovely isn’t it? Arizona residents not only have the Grand Canyon and the beach in close proximity but we also have the get away from the summer heat which would be anywhere up north like Flagstaff, Payson, and Prescott. Arizona is the place to live that has more than one season all year long and has many adventures to discover.
