Downtown Toronto is my new home

Every morning I think this phrase, ”I belong downtown”. When I first moved away from Scarborough, I was scared of the people around me. I was shy when meeting new people. Four years ago, I began to believe that I belong downtown. It’s been a long time and I am used to it now. Downtown Toronto is my new home. There are many reasons why I love living downtown. First, I appreciate being surrounded by different races and cultures. It makes me feel happy to see diverse people around me. Secondly, I love being close to shopping malls, such as the Eaton Centre. Thirdly, there is a lot of things to do to stay entertained. For example, Toronto hosts events such as the C.N.E. and concerts featuring famous artists, such as Bruno Mars. This is why I belong downtown and I’ll never leave.

Downtown is everyone seems like friends

When I think of downtown Toronto, I think of lots of nice people walking the streets of this beautiful part of the city. Every person is going somewhere for different reasons at different times. In this diverse part of the city, it seems as though everyone is friends. My favorite part of downtown Toronto is the MLSE field by Nelson Mandela Park Public School. It’s good because you can play many different sports, such as basketball, soccer, hockey, and baseball. The other great thing about it is that is brings together people of different backgrounds, races and religions. I belong downtown because everyone belongs downtown.

Toronto: a diverse place where everyone is welcome

Before coming to Toronto, I use to live in the suburbs of Ottawa. I always loved to go downtown because of all the big tall buildings, and glowing lights. My daycare and my mom’s work was downtown too. At 6:30, when I went home all the lights were on. It was beautiful. I also went downtown with my dad because of the GGs, Ottawa's football team. We would be the only ones there and the hot dog vender would only make one hot dog for me! It was awesome! Then I moved to downtown Toronto, a diverse place where everyone is welcome.
