Donna has been surprising me as time goes by. I thought it was just a small town but in reality it is not! I have lived here for about three years now and i have really learned to enjoy my city. I made many new friends in my new high school and have learned many new things, one of them, to more involved in community events or projects.

Donna is a small little town in Texas that is near the border, and while it may be small there's a lot of little small fun activities around the town. There's even a small park where many families and friends go to hang out. I do wish there was more activities to do in Donna like an arcade or bowling alley.
I have been living in Donna for as long as I have lived, and I have not personally come across any dangerous situations, my neighbors are for the most part, quiet and friendly. The city has been growing in these past few years, and I cannot wait to see what will come in the future.
