My home and culture
My favorite part about my home and culture is that every day I can go play soccer. I am especially happy with the soccer community as we are all a family, and we work hard and have fun together. I am grateful that my parents work hard, so i don't have to get a job, and can enjoy my high school years. The community we have in Fortuna is a friendly community with not a lot of people. This lets us build connections with people that we might never have if the population was bigger. If I had to change one thing about Fortuna is the stereo type, or the "one story" people have about us. Anywhere i go if i tell people I am from Humboldt county, the county that my home town is in, they assume its a place full of drug users, especially marijuana. If anyone actually came to Fortuna, which people don't often do, they would see that drugs aren't extremely present as the stereo types say they are. Other than that the only thing i would change is the amount of stores, and activities we lack. Forcing us to travel out of Humboldt counties winding long roads.
