    The weather is great. We get all four seasons. The winters vary a bit. Sometimes we get snow and other times not. The summers are always fantastic! It typically doesn't get too hot. There will be a few days in the 90's, but July and August tend to be in the upper 70's and 80's in terms of highs.
    The city of Portland is one that offers extensive opportunities. The schools are continuously improving which is crucial for a student like myself, and the job market seems to be expanding. I love living in this city and I definitely picture myself starting a life here in the future.
    I never feel unsafe and any crimes that occur are very minimal. However, I think that a lot of the crime is race or ethnicity-based. A few years ago, someone was breaking into houses in my neighborhood, and they only broke into Indian families' homes.
