I am proud to be an Arizonan because I was born here, so I have lived here a long time. I go to Willis jr. high, which is in chandler, but I live in Gilbert. Living in Arizona is good, and Arizona is a safe place to live.
It is peaceful in southwestern Arizona. The best thing about living here is the sunset and the sunrise. When it is sunrise, it is like the whole town is covered in sparkles. When it is sunset it is like the town is on fire, which is really pretty. It has orange, pink, and purple mixed in together. Another thing is that we have no earthquakes, we do have some but they are so little you can’t even feel it! Also we do not have floods, or hurricanes.
Another thing is that is special here the Grand Canyon, people all over visit the Grand Canyon. I have been there at least once and it is worth driving all the way there. It is very peaceful and quiet. Last we have festivals once a year. it is very exiting and a must go to.
Another thing is that the summer is the best time to go swimming. It also gets very hot in the summer but you will get used to it. The spring is the wait, because the winter can get very cold. Those are all the reasons I am proud to be an Arizonan.
