I love the energy of the inner city neighborhoods and the diversity I experience daily. I am afforded many opportunities to learn from people different than myself that help to make me my best self. While living in a neighbor that has many economic, educational and practical daily challenges, being among such motivated people for basic survival, inspires me to mindful and grateful for what I achieve through hard work and effort.

The twin cities are great for those interested in theatre and creative writing! The people here are friendly and supportive. The winters are harsh but there's a great array of seasons.
We love the conviences that Grand Avenue offers as well as the architectural beauty that Summit Ave has to offer!
