I am forever grateful for my experience in the area I live in. Living in the beautiful, small town of Underwood has molded who I am today. I have learned so many important life lessons from the people who I came to know as family in my town. I plan on raising my family in this town because I know if I need it I will have the support from the community. I have made friends who I will keep close to me for the rest of my life and I want my kids to experience the same love and support. It is a small community so not very many businesses are here. We live about twenty minutes from a city with all the necessary stores for groceries, clothes, etc. But there are small businesses coming to the town throughout the years. The general atmosphere is perfect and I would always recommend people to consider having their family grow there.

The crime rates are relatively low. Every once in a while there will be a few high schools kids causing trouble but its usually just a noise complaint. I will be okay and feel safe if I walk down the sidewalk at night, but if there is any trouble there is a cop who patrols around the town.
Norwalk is a big town with a small town feel. It has offered me many opportunities in my life to learn and grow as a student and person.
