A lot of job was amazing and I've met so many business owners that inspires me not to settle. That if I put my mind on something I can succeed. This is the reason why I'm in school to. I want to open my own shelter and substance abuse facility. What I've seen is, the drugs are causing people to lose everything and lose a safe place to live. I want to be able to give them a safe and warm place to live, at the same time, focusing on what we can do about their drug abuse issues.

Right now my husband and I are looking for a new place to move to. Not because where are now is really bad but it just does not seem to fit us. I moved here from Baltimore City, which was probably the best thing I could have done but now I want more. I want more from the community and neighbors. I fell like in the place we live everyone is all about their selves, and maybe that maybe everywhere anymore but I'd like to find something a little more different. I do enjoy living in the PA area but I think I get caught up in the rules and regulation that are not present in Baltimore. It was a big change but I believe for the best. I think right now my over all is and 6 out of 10, I feel like there is more or just a better place suited for my family.
Sometimes I feel stuck, other times I'm so glad I'm here. There's always employment opportunities, this area houses the Wellspan medical group which has hundreds of fields available. The area also has a strong historical background and a fair seat in government. They're currently working on making the area more easily traversed.
