Our crime rate in our city is very low which is amazing. Drug use is a problem, especially among the wealthier areas of town. Drug use is evident everywhere though.

I enjoy living in this town and it was an incredible place to grow up, but there is a lack of diversity. I am excited to go to college and meet people who have differing opinions and life experience.
