It’s like a rite of passage… leaving the parental nest and deciding where you’ll live after graduating from college. For some it’s a decision made right after high school. Either way, it’s not one that should be taken lightly.
Growing up in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, I can remember thinking about the color of my parachute and dreaming about the places I’d go. As a young and ambitious Latino with big dreams, I knew I wanted more than what was available in my hometown. My thoughts we’re perfectly reflected in a song by Sara Evans, “Born To Fly“…
“My daddy he is grounded like the oak tree,
My momma she is steady as the sun,
Oh, you know I love my folks,
But I keep starin’ down the road…
Just lookin’ for my one chance to run.”
Well, if you’re ready, ready to run… but have no earthly idea where to go… you’re in luck! mun2 has just announced “The 15 Best Cities for Young Latinos.”
The broadcast network ranked the nation’s biggest cities based on things like top salaries and cheapest housing to come up with the list. So if you’re a young Latino hoping to live, love, work and play in a big way, mun2 has done the homework for you! Now all you need is the U-Haul!
