Personally I wouldn't choose to live in my current area if i had a choice. I am grateful though to be able to understand the hardships and knowing that living in a poor neighborhood there is only one way for me to go. Since i already live in the bottom only direction to go is up. In the future of my area i would hope that the city officials will help guide our city into a thriving community. A community that is close knit and can work together to help reduce the crime within the area.

I would come back and live in Stockton because despite the issues, it's what motivated me to strive for more. I'd also like to give back and try to make this city a better place.
Crime rates are high, and it feels unsafe walking alone.
