I love that Indy is a big, little city. I was born and raised in Mississippi. Being in a mid-sized city in the Midwest, I had no idea that this city would offer big city vibes with a southern hospitality flow. It’s easy to make connections with people here, but the spaces are far and few in between it seems like. That’s changed across the last 5 years I’ve been here in the city, but I’m looking forward to seeing this city grow into the potential that I see for it. I think my favorite place to hang out is downtown- particularly wherever the music and crowd is. I vibe with people. I want to see more spaces for black and brown folks to connect and build community.
