Omaha is a great place to live. Here’s why: I was originally born in South Omaha and moved away, then, proudly came back as a boomerang in 2011. Since then, I’ve got hyper-involved in lots of different groups. I take pride in the juxtaposed mixes of people I surround myself with and enjoy sharing those connections with newcomers to Omaha. There are so many friendly people passionate about making a difference in our community. It’s so easy to get plugged in and be part of great things.
