North Andover is a well-organised city with great schools like Merrimack college. This college has brought a lot of international students from across the world and in addition helped to improve small, medium and large businesses within the area. On the other hand, North Andover does not have a good transportation system as you will have to own a car or use a private taxi service (Uber) to enable move around. This system cannot be afforded by all, including students. I would want the transportation system to improve so that people can move freely and also come into North Andover without any transportation restrictions.

In terms of safety and suburban feel this town is great. However in terms of feeling a sense of belonging being an Asian American minority there are much better communities that I feel more situated in, for instance Boston. The education system in North Andover I am very appreciative of however because it has challenged me and once I went to college looking back it has allowed me to see how important my education is and the educators pushed me to work harder than just simply pass a class. Compared to the city this town offers a smaller amount of activities to do and less of an open minded community which is what this town needs to grow and work to become like the diverse community in Boston.
North Andover, MA is a relaxing suburb town near Andover, Wilmington and Boxford. It has a superb school system with amazing teachers who really go above and beyond. There is a lot of nature to explore and enjoy. There are a lot of spots for fishing, canoeing, and hiking trails.
