I Am From the Sunshine and Warmth

I am from a place created by the sun,

Where warmth allowed orange trees to flourish and farmers to succeed

Somewhere so beautiful, my parents couldn’t stand to leave.


I am from a city where happiness radiates year-round,

From summer concerts in the park with dripping popsicles

And Winter pool parties because the sun won’t allow the rain.


I am from beach trips before zero period

Dinner on the sand at 32nd street with California burritos, watching the sunset

And yacht rock concerts with my parents and their friends


I am from church on Sundays at the same church my mom was baptized and parents were married,

And nightly, home-cooked family dinners

Where anyone who needs a place to stay is always welcome.


I am from a neighborhood where friends become family,

Where everybody knows everybody

And a place that will always feel like home.


I am from Fullerton, a city in sunny Orange County.

I Am From the Sunshine and Warmth
My Adobe presentation!

I chose to use Adobe becuase I felt like it was the most user-friendly between the two options. I really liked the way that I was able to get images so easily and embed them into my project. I also thought that the final result was clean, looked nice, and was creative! I really like this platform and will definitely use it again. I think that it would be really cool to use this as a get to know me in the beginning of the year!
