I love the diversity. Miami is a place where you can expect to experience different cultures without having to leave the country. One thing to know, you'll never be bored with the different food options. If you're interested in the night life, there's several locations throughout the city and we have beach weather about 360 days out of the year! However; the city is very congested so expect to pack your patience when commuting no matter the time of day.

Miami Florida is a place I was born but truly never felt like it was home. Growing up I came to explore and realized that this place is pretty awesome. I was introduced into the art world and even found a home in the heart of the Miami Beach area. I came to grow, love, embrace the city as a whole. With that there the disadvantages. The disadvantages for not feeling like I'm not worth a simple scholarship because I'm not smart enough, because of the color of my skin, my last name, and my ethnic background. I want to Beyonce my way to the top by working hard, pleasing me, making my dreams a reality, and helping and setting an example for the people in my city who look just like me and that wiling to make an impact to those around them. If I cant make a home outside of Miami, I will most definitely become successful and thrive in this place!
Miami-Dade County is a part of the bustling city of Miami. It is a place where live moves quickly and there is always something interesting going on. One major advantage of living in Miami-Dade is the fact that you can always find something to do! There are a lot of entertainment options, whether you like night life, beaches, or culture; you can find it there. Another advantage is that a lot of these entertainment options are in close proximity. Although, Miami-Dade is great, it does have it's disadvantages. One of those disadvantages is the high crime rate and the cost of living there.
