My experience has been alright. Once you move near the sawgrass area going down to the weston side, it gets incredibly different than my side next to lauderhill. The police have seriously pulled some sketchy moves that i would consider as discrimination. My parents barely speak english, they work hard, and they’re incredibly supportive to help the community. They encouraged me to get involved with the city during my senior year of highschool, and I must say; i learned more about the real world than I did taking college level courses in School.

Sunrise is awesome! I am nearby Publix, Wal-Mart, and the Sawgrass mall. Everything is close to me here. I am also close to the major highways which is a win because I have to travel often for work. It is very diverse and I just love it overall!
