David Toronto

Name: David

Age: 35

What neighbourhood are you from? Downtown (City Place by Skydome)

What do you 'do'? I work for one of the banks in the city.

How long have you been in Toronto? Almost 10 years

What's your story? My oldest sister escaped from Vietnam and moved to Toronto in the late 70's. She sponsored our entire family so I moved here when I was 12. I'm the youngest of eleven children - I have 5 brothers and 5 sisters.

I lived in Oshawa and then in Scarborough but moved to Toronto to be closer to work. I work Monday to Friday and on the weekends, I spend time with family and friends going clubbing, to movies, for dinners and hanging out.

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

I must say, its multiculturalism and its diversity. There seems to be a free attitude where you can be whoever you want to be. There's also a great sense of fashion, food, people and attractions. There are great places to go and hang out with your friends and family. There are a lot of places left for me to explore - little streets and little towns, here and there.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

There are certain areas in the city that are not very clean to me...and the homelessness. To me, it's a little irritating. You don't want to see as many homeless as you see especially around the city's attractions, tourist areas and the financial district where I work.

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

My family knows a lot about different parts of my life yet they still love me just the same. At the end of the day, I'm the baby of the family and they love me for who I am and are there for me, regardless. It's your personality that's more important - it's who you are more than what you are.
