Coatesville is an extremely diverse city with a beautiful community. It is a place that I will always consider my home. However, it also contains some slight defects. If I could change Coatesville I would add more job opportunities with better pay in order to help families financially and to make Coatesville a strong community economically. Coatesville has a very friendly ambience during the day, but at night it becomes a lot more dangerous. If I could change this I would add a law enforcement system with better judgement and increased safety protocols. Coatesville will forever be my home, but it still contains branches it can improve upon.
Within Coatesville, it is full of diversity; I like the schools and the community. I have done community service my community, I have repainted the globe with my unit and we have moved books from the library to the strawberry festival. A while ago we helped in the garden by picking weeds and a lot of other stuff too. The community has many events that I partake in; every year there is a Christmas parade and I have done many color guards for the events in the community. I have lived here my entire life so far and I have learned a lot about my school and community.
