Q: How does Indianapolis compare to Sacramento?
A: I don’t think you can compare (them). The weather here is amazing! There are so many more places to visit around Sacramento than around Indianapolis. People here are nicer and more open. It was hard to find people like that in Indiana.

A: They say that there’s some really good food and candy in Old Sacramento.
Q: Do you think you’ll ever move from Sacramento?
A: Hopefully, I’ll get to finish my high school years here, and after that I’m sure I’ll move somewhere for college, not sure where yet though. I might even stay if I really enjoy the weather!
