Well I been staying in brownsville since I was born. The house me and my parents stay in now is the house my mom and uncle was raised in by my grandmother. Personally I love living here, after living here for so long we know majority of the neighborhood and we have a special connection with each of our neighbors. The street I live on is very quiet not a lot of action takes place, it's a nice block I stay on. We rarely have shootings and the police are never needed to be called on for any danger.

over all not a great place to live. the area i live in is a bad environment to be in. Over all people are just misguided and wont change but don't stand we have to educate or self first then make change with love. but poverty has a whole of my environment. i wish not to live here but what can you do, sense i'm here i rather be the change or help the change in my environment reason for me applying for a scholar ship.
The neighborhood I live in is quiet however there are a lot of cars that use the residential streets in this area. I live in a house and there are only houses in my neighborhood which is a plus.
