I love Asbury Park! It has been so great living here. The friendliest faces and some of the greatest food of the Jersey Shore. The restaurants are excellent, the people are kind and it is overall great.

Asbury Park is in the midst of a renaissance that highlights the city's historical architecture and seaside attractions with its rock n'roll attitude and style. Once famous for its boardwalk, Asbury has seen its share of rough times, and its residents are overjoyed at its revival. You can find an eclectic mix of premier restaurants and eateries, including Ethiopian, Jamaican, French, and Southern comfort cuisines. The city hosts music performances every night of the week at multiple venues. The melting pot of local residents creates a unique culture where all are welcomed and all share the boardwalk together, cultivating and pioneering a new wave of American society. Asbury Park is proud to rise up from its own ashes, acknowledging its history and welcoming in its future. Asbury Park is the diamond in the rough that is finally shining like the gem it truly is.
I lived in asbury for 15 years. Throughout those years I have met many people and I learned a lot about my community. I attended the public schools and became involved within my community by giving back. There are many things that motivate me, although what motivates me the most above all is the community that I grew up in. I am from a town where succeeding isn’t common. One of my goals in life is to make a positive impact in my community and globally by exemplifying that it does not matter where one may come from, there’s always room for growth, improvement, and success. To illustrate, it was an enlightened experience to be a mentor to the students of Asbury Park Middle School for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program. This experience fueled my desire to change the lives of individuals who goes through adversity. Uplifting my community empowered me to comprehend the importance of a positive role model.
