Growing up asian in Beaumont, Tx is fairly a fun experience. We call it an asian community, all asians in the area know each other one way or another! The asian community spreads across all over Jefferson County. I do wish Beaumont had more activities to do and wish it was a little more safer. I have never gone for a walk outside of my neighborhood and even when walking in my neighborhood it'd be in broad daylight. We installed cameras because my father and mother's car has been broken into a few times, which is very alarming because their cars are parked outside in the driveway.

Beaumont is the perfect city for anyone who is looking for a quiet area! We have few, but amazing attractions: Lamar University offers a wide variety of summer camps for all ages! Few do pay the fee for economically disadvantaged students, so it is a plus for low income families; other camps are free. The Children's Museum also holds various summer activities and events. The Art Museum of Southeast Texas also holds various creative events for kids to make wacky crafts! The art museum also offers summer camps for children! The best attraction for young people would be the Butch Stadium, where various high schools play football! As for our school district, Beaumont Independent School District, we have many teachers who truly care for the education of the students! We have many of the smartest students represented at graduation every year! Our city has an average population, so crowding is no issue. Beaumont continues to grow as the population has greatly increased throughout the years!
Resilience means knowing how to cope in spite of setbacks, or barriers, or limited resources. Resilience is a measure of how much you want something and how much you are willing, and able, to overcome obstacles to get it. It has to do with your emotional strength. The one thing I experience with the city of Beaumont is its resilience. Hurricane Harvey slammed the state in August 2017, a Category 4 beast when it made landfall in Southeast Texas. Parts of Beaumont were devastated by the killer storm. Two years later, Imelda hit and areas of Beaumont found themselves again submerged under more than 20 inches of rain. The community of Beaumont came together. Although many was affected , many people still continued to help out in the community. Beaumont is a great place to live and the safety it possesses is phenomenal.
