“I want to share with you all, in the hope that you will share back, my favorite aspects of Los Angeles.
Yes, the food options are delicious. Yes, we have beautiful landscapes. Yes, if you want to learn, to party, or to travel, LA can provide for it all. My favorite thing about Los Angeles, though, goes deeper than that.
It all ties back to the diversity that is seen across everything in Los Angeles.
What I love most about this city is the diversity that I’ve seen in the people, neighborhoods, businesses, restaurants, areas of the city, and scenery all around LA and the actual history of the city.”
