Honestly, growing up in Trenton I was always very aware of what the real world can be like. I've encountered many different types of personalities, found people with incredible gifts, and been forced to realize the dangers of what society can have. I think living in Trenton I understood a lot more about life early on, as opposed to people who lived in more sheltered environments. And I'm appreciative for that.

I wish that we could have more variety within our community. More place for people to feel comfortable than feel left out. Businesses are good for the most part, but i think more business should focus more on the people.
I feel like the housing in Trenton doesn't take into account people with larger families.
