I love where I’m from. If I had to chose one thing that inspires me the most, it would have to be the spirit of Tucson. The people, landscapes, food, culture, art, music – everything.
Some day soon I will move away, but my heart will always be here. What makes Tucson amazing is its imperfections. There are ugly parts of town and off-the-wall people who inhabit this city – but without the weirdness I don’t know if it would be as beautiful. There is a sense of community here that I’m not sure if I’ll find anywhere else. As a city we collectively respect our culture, our landscapes, and our history. Growing up in Southern Arizona will always be my greatest inspiration and I am so thankful to call the city of Tucson my home.
