I've lived in Aberdeen for most of my adolescence. I've met a lot of people here, and I think it's a nice place to live. However, I know that this opinion is not shared by everyone in Aberdeen. It is considered a city, and it bares the markings of one. A lot of people and cheap schools, it's not the greatest place if you're used to better. But I love it regardless. Everything is close together and within walking distance, I walked to school for most of my life which I definitely prefer over a bus. I do wish that they spend more money on the schools however, and some parts of the city could use some work. However, it's generally crime-free from my experience, and while there aren't that many exciting places to go, it's a nice homey little place.

I moved here when I started 5th grade. I like it here, the neighborhoods and areas are very pretty and kept clean. There are flowers sometimes planted in the median of the roads which is very pretty. Also, I made a lot of friends around here from interacting with people down the street and in my school. I can participate on topics through protests with my community, just how we did recently in Bel Air for black lives matter. I like my community very much and I hope to get more involved as I get older.
My neighbors are nice and my neighborhood is quiet. Plus my neighborhood is close to shops, restaurants, fire department and police station. I love that!
