As part of Arizona’s centennial celebration, the East Valley Tribune asked students to write an essay on why they’re proud to live in Arizona.
I’m writing this to tell you reasons I like Arizona. I love Arizona! One of the things I love about Arizona, it’s hot! I have only one reason. I couldn’t decide!
Was your trip to Hawaii canceled? Are you depressed? Well you shouldn’t be, because you can still come to Arizona. Arizona is a very opulent state. It is also a great place where you can just have fun on vacation. While you’re in Arizona you can do a lot of fascinating things, like snowboarding, skiing, hiking, cycling, swimming, and you can visit a various amount of national parks. You can do almost all of those things any day you want in Arizona. Here are my most important reasons why I am proud to be an Arizonan.
Have you ever wanted to go somewhere in the world? Why not consider Arizona? I am very proud to live in Arizona for many reasons. Arizona has many historical sites including Canyon de Chelly, Spider Rock and the Grand Canyon. Arizona has many interesting animals like cactus wrens and sidewinder rattlesnakes. Though my favorite thing about Arizona is that I am surrounded by so many different kinds of people including Indians, Mexicans, Asians and more!
Have you ever been excited about something, and you wanted to tell the world? Well, that’s what I’m doing now. And I’m telling you about my home, Arizona, one of the Seven Wonders of the World (just kidding). There are three reasons why I like Arizona. Reason one is the wide variety of animals to study. Reason two is the fabulous scenery to go and see. And reason three is all of fun you can have in Arizona. That is why I’m proud to be an Arizonan.
Have you ever been to a place so incredibly alluring? I have, it’s Arizona. Arizona has a wonderful climate. In the summer it’s usually around 108 degrees. It also has very interesting animals, such as the gila monster and the king snake. There are so many diverting landmarks in Arizona.
Are you proud to live in Arizona? Well if you ask me, then yes. Because of the beautiful sights like the Grand Canyon. I went to the Grand Canyon when I was little. But when I got there the weather was crazy. The wind was hard. It blew me away! Then it finally ended so we went back the next day. The weather was perfect.
It’s true that Arizona doesn’t have the best summer climate, but we have air conditioning, fans, and swimming pools. However, the winter climate is a winner. For those who get tired of treading through snow every single day of winter, Arizona is the place for you. While you’re here, you might want to pay a visit to the Grand Canyon or Montezuma Castle. Both are very worthwhile sights to see. Then, when your day is over, you might want to stay in Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, Scottsdale, or Chandler. The people here are very thoughtful and caring (besides Jan Brewer and Sheriff Arpaio BOOM!) — and will help you find a good place to stay.
Arizona is a rough place with hot air and sand but the reason most people are here is to ride horses and feel the true desert. The desert here makes you work hard and have fun. The most amazing part is seeing the full moon in the middle of the desert. If you ever see a Gila monster do not let it bite you because they are poisonous. The one thing we are known for is the big mighty saguaro cactus at home in the desert. The one thing you don’t want to touch or tap is the jumping cactus. Another unique animal you can see is a roadrunner running through the desert. I don’t think anyone can catch it. Now the beautiful part of the morning is the beautiful sunset rising up to make our day. I’m proud to be an Arizonian because this state offers amazing sites.
I am proud to be an Arizonian because I was born in Arizona and Arizona is an excellent state! Being an Arizonian is so wonderful! Arizona has lots of legends passed on from lots of generations and I love listening to them. I also love being an Arizonian because of the beautiful sights, the Grand Canyon being one of them. Arizona is one of the most beautiful places anyone could live in. That’s why I love being an Arizonian!!!!
Have you ever lived in a place and you were proud of it? I have, and that place would be Arizona. I’m so proud I could gasconade about it all day long if I had to. There are many reasons why I am proud to live in Arizona: its history, its climate, and its popularity. Those are only some of the reasons why I am proud to live in Arizona.
Ever thought about taking a vacation to Arizona? Well if not, here are some reasons why you might want to. I’m proud to live in Arizona because you can be swimming in one area of the state while later playing in the snow near Flagstaff. I love the diverse population of flora and fauna (flora: animals; fauna: plants). The climate is wonderful here because it is almost always different.
If someone were to ask you why you’re proud to live in your state, Arizona, what would you say? Would you tell them that it’s because there aren’t any major storms, such as hurricanes? Or that its because all your family lives here? Those wouldn’t be any of my reasons! Living in Arizona makes me proud because of the warm weather, the people, and it’s the most pulchritudinous place I’ve ever been! Why, you ask, are these reasons to be proud? I’ll tell you.
I am proud to be an Arizonan because when you’re at the top of a mountain it is beautiful. If there was never Native Americans, there would not be writing on the rocks. I am proud to live in a state with a desert. Arizona is also the only state with saguaros.
