Growing up in Woodinville, I felt isolated from my peers at school (especially in elementary and junior high). Mostly because there is not much racial/ethnic diversity, and individuals of my age and teachers would treat me differently. I was not exposed to many other students of color in this environment, so I could only act the way I saw my Caucasian peers at school, and they still judged and bullied me. Another factor of my feeling of isolation was also my financial status living in this somewhat affluent town. Students my age didn't worry about money issues at a young age because their parents would work at jobs like Microsoft or Boeing, whereas my Mom was a homemaker, and my dad worked in maintenance at my school district. In this place, I feel the economical and social pressures of this community, and I hope that these diminish over time, so that other students of color like me don't feel like they are lacking in opportunities to thrive in their own communities.

Woodinville is my favorite place I've ever lived, and I've lived quite a few places. At the age of 17, I have lived in, I believe, ten houses. I have traveled around the world with my parents and lived in multiple states in America. All that being said, there's something special about Woodinville. It feels like the middle of the woods but is a short drive to more modern conveniences, it has four beautiful, distinct seasons, and goes at a slower pace than other cities. The mascot of Woodinville is the basset hound, and there are basset hound parades held in the town center. Deer and bear wander through yards and sometimes even into town. Woodinville is it's own little world, a world I am lucky to live in.
I have lived in many cities around the world, from Tehran in Iran, to Haifa in Israel, and even some cities in Washington State, including Seattle and Bothell, but, I can say without hesitation, Woodinville has been, by far, one of the best cities I have ever lived in. Being in the suburbs of Seattle, the small community, although has no night life, gives the people a chance to build friendships with their neighbors and contribute to community development throughout Woodinville. The serene and quite location is also one of the reasons that real state is more expensive than other cities in Washington State.
