I love living where I do. My neighborhood is enriched with such a vibrant and deeply rooted Hispanic population. Growing up in a white household, I'm endlessly grateful for the opportunity I had to go to Mexican grocery stores and restaurants and experience a culture different from my own. I'm grateful I experienced the multi-culturalism of the real world at a young age.
Round Lake is united community with roots that set us apart from our surrounding communities. By using our ethnic, hard-working backgrounds, we support ourselves and those we love. As an educated youth who grew up in Round Lake, I'm proud to call myself a resident who contributes to our development. Over time, Round Lake has increasingly become a community of respect and awareness. We acknowledge our issues with the intent to correct them in order to make our future better.
