My family and I, moved away from San Diego in 2007. Ready to start over in a more affordable location. We headed back east and lived in Ohio for 4 yrs. One of the main reasons we returned to San Diego, (besides THE WEATHER) was the diversity!
I grew up in National City, amongst it’s predominantly Latino population. I am the youngest child and grew up with biracial siblings. I spent most of my youth learning about the cultures that surrounded me and being fascinated by those differences. I was taught to love people for who they are and for that I am grateful. I wanted to ensure that my children would have that same upbringing.
San Diego is a hub of diversity. Our town is home to people from all over the world, which blesses our community with a vast array of international cuisines and also the wonderful collection of cultural events, etc.
Here are some events coming up this month!!
