  • When I was about 6 years old, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri. I was there from 1st grade until 8th grade, so all of elementary and middle school. I grew up there. It is where I went from small child, to kid, to tween, to a person, it's where I grew up. obviously, I did not stop there, but it is, and will always be, a place where I can be home. When I go back and visit about twice a year, the little suburb that I lived in is as wonderful as ever. boring and simple and lovely and I miss it. When people ask me what my home town is, I never say the city I was born in. I will always ay St. Louis
