Beardstown is a great oppotunity to develop your abilities and straights. Been an imigrant is a hard work, but beardstown town provide so many ways and is big in diversity. It have great opportunities, example the school gives so many developments for your goof and future.
It is small town which can be great but also bad. You don't have as many stores available to you, so you would have to travel to the next town or city. But other than that its a small community where almost everyone knows each other and interact on a daily basis.
There have been a lot of people from Africa arriving, but most people have lived here their entire life.
