Why San Francisco is Important to Me: Born and raised in the best city in the world, San Francisco has instilled some of the greatest values that made me achieve academic and social success in my college career in Washington DC. Being in the east coast has made me grow fonder of how the basic functions of a city lies in the importance of its departments. I really did leave my heart in San Francisco. Coming back to the San Francisco was the best option for me to continue my passion in working for a city that is constantly leads the way for progressive ideas and competitive economics. My placement this year does just that, and to expand my knowledge on the city I love cannot be a better way to live the dream.
