58 letters on the American Dream from San Marcos University students, San Diego, California, USA
letter 24: Kelly

Dear German students,

 I personally really enjoy living in southern California. Since I was born and raised here I find this location to be such a wonderful place to grow up. Where I grew up I was only an hour away from several well-known and beautiful California beaches and only about twenty to forty minutes away from the popular ski and snowboard attractions. Also in all directions there are well known amusements parks to provide a fun filled day. Over the years I have noticed the increase in Hispanics is southern California. In my point of view, who wouldn’t want to live in southern California? I completely understand why people would want to live and vacation here in southern California because it is so beautiful and accommodating. The only time I would have a problem with immigration is if they don’t help keep southern California such a wonderful place.
