When I was looking for college, I looked in New York and I didn’t like the whol concrete jungle sort of thing. I felt like New York was filled which a bunch of old tires. So when I was looking for places to live, I was looking for a youthful city.
I fell in love with Columbus. I had no idea that a place like this existed. I was looking at Portland and Seattle, all those popular, young kid places. But I didn’t really ever think of Columbus. I got here and I’ve been happy ever since.
I can have that big city experience, with the different melting pots and all that. I’m Puerto Rican, so it's cool to know there are areas in Columbus where the people are from where I’m from, and even the people who are not from where I'm from... Lots of them are in Dublin. There are also a lot of Vietnamese folks in Worthington, and I know a lot of Somalians hang out up north, too. But I found most of the diversity in Dublin. Columbus, the city, is only twnety minutes away. So you can get the huge suburbs, with seclusion and big plots of land, but not be too far away. I picture getting a big farm house and still be ing close enough to work.
