Location, location, location... is what I have to say about Orange County. We are located in the middle of tourist central. Tourist attractions like, the theme parks, the beaches, and malls are near this county for residents and tourists. Having an annual pass to Sea World parks and Universal Studios parks have to be my favorite thing about living here. There are many diverse cultures which allows us to have a variety on food options whether they be in the grocery stores, food trucks and restaurants. Not only are attractions close but also, healthcare facilities such as: hospitals, clinics, vets, and pharmacies. My family and I have been living here for about eighteen years now, which means I grew up here. Honestly, I would not have chosen a better place to grow up in, because; every experience whether good or bad has shaped me into who I am today.

When volunteering, you not only feel good about yourself but also you get the satisfaction of combined service into the lives of people and create a difference in the community. With a busy school life, it was hard to find time to volunteer; however, the advantages of volunteering are worth it to you and your community in the end. I saw that volunteering gave many benefits because I got to see how their contribution has made a difference. Giving cleaning supplies to people in need and seeing there smile on there face just gives you a soft, warm feeling in your heart which makes you experience a different feeling and it makes you want to give back to people more often. There was some people who were crying, others were smiling and because of that, you can feel the love that was in the atmosphere.
I really the school and how the people is. Orlando, Florida may be best known for Disney World and Universal, but it's also known for a lot more besides. This central Florida region attracts around 60 million visitors every year, who come for the warm climate, the world-famous theme parks, the shopping malls, the golf courses and the nightlife. Also,Orlando is home to more than 100 lakes. Lake Eola in downtown Orlando is actually a giant sinkhole and is 80 feet at its deepest point. Moreover, You can hike through pristine Everglades National Park or ride on glass-bottom boats across Biscayne National Park. Saint Augustine is the oldest European settlement in North America.
