I love the growth Orlando offers. I originally moved here from North Carolina, like many in central Florida, I had relocated for change and opportunity. I have share my entire adulthood with the city. So much good has some to me throughout the years, I owe my growth to myself for trying but mainly to the area for having these opportunities and not being afraid to take on someone inexperienced as I once was. After a long day of work you have many theme parks where I have overcome my
fear of heights. I did that at Disney which is a stunning park, almost feels like it’s own little city, even equipped with its own “downtown”. There is an abundance of activities and you are discounted for being a resident! Also makes for fun jobs too, however cost of living is pricey and many people have roommates to get by.

I came here from the Philippines last March 2017 and was given an opportunity to work in one of the resorts in Orlando and I can say it is one city that you'd always go back to whenever you visit Florida. Aside from different cultures and people you meet on a daily basis, Orlando has everything a resident/tourist might want to see. There's endless job opportunities in the area since Tourism is very much in demand as well. Though not really cheap, cost of living is way better than the other states and weather is perfect all year round. There's so much to do and experience in Orlando!
I was born and raised in Orlando, and I love my city! However, there are a few changes that can be made to make the city even better as whole. Public schools must change drastically in Orlando, to better equipped our youth for their future. We need more teachers who are genuinely interested in helping children exceed. We are also need more public transportation around the city. More bus stops, more Sun rail stations, and even cheaper taxi services that can be trusted. Uber is great, but sometimes don’t feel safe. Other than that, I love Orlando and living here.
