I love Southeast San Diego. Also known as SE Daygo for the natives, this particular neighborhood in San Diego thoroughly represents African american culture through our art, music, and unity. Though its all love within our community, I would like to have Southeast San Diego included more into the development of San Diego in general. A lot of the accomplishments and milestones that we meet/accomplish are rarely broadcasted compared to cities such as Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch, and Normal Heights. If we had the opportunity to show San Diego the potential we had as a neighborhood, that would most likely create even more opportunities to “collab” with other neighborhoods and represent San Diego as one.

Southeast San Diego does a disservice to San Diego. Residents don't take care of their homes, inside or out. Front yards look like abandoned lots because no one cares for maintenance. Or there are always a collection of cars parked out front, keeping grass and shrubbery from being able to grow. Every week there's a shooting, street side memorials being put up for another young person that has lost their life. Even the nice things in the community get ruined. A new library got built and in under a year, they had tagging on their glass doors, the plants got trampled all over and killed, and the police get called a couple times a month. In 2018, gas prices were supposed to go up in an effort to fix the streets. Gas is still going up, but I can't drive more than a mile without having to maneuver around a pothole. Nobody cares about us because this community is comprised of minorities, as if we don't deserve nice things too.
Southeastern San Diego may not be the prettiest, wealthiest place in San Diego; however, it is a melting pot of culture and that is what makes it so beautiful. People are friendly, and for the most part it is very diverse and people see each other as equals. The only change I would make is to fix up some of the roads that are old and cracking.
