I've lived in Berrien County for my entire lives. Not only is it a mixing pot of different cultures, but there are also thousands of places to go in the light of day. I, for one, take advantage of these opportunities as they arise. Whether it's attending the Berrien County Youth Fair or browsing shops in Downtown St. Joe, I never find myself at a loss of entertainment and activities. Berrien County has so much heart in its community, and living here has definitely made my standards high when I'm looking for other places to live in my future.

I like the nice atmosphere there is around. It is also the home of my studies. However, I wish it's accessibility to job opportunities and the outside world improves
I was born and raised here, so I really do not have much to say. It's all that I know. Low to moderate socioeconomic income. A great deal of systematic racism woven into the fiber into our laws, housing, economy.
