Welcome to Houston, a city full of diversity, pride, and hearts of champions .
Last year our city faced one of the biggest floods we have seen in our lifetime due to Hurricane Harvey. A time where some would try to focus on themselves to get ahead, but not Houston. Houston opened their doors, hearts and pockets to help their neighbors. To see the shelters and food banks have to turn down volunteers, because they had more than enough…that was a beautiful reminder of good humanity. It was a true awakening.
This year, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Discovery Green. A beautiful park in the middle of downtown where families can go out, and enjoy some art with our beautiful skyscrapers hugging it. It is a big milestone, so the city decided to do something very creative by creating a collage with pictures submitted through Instagram that were tagged by #DiscoveryGreen10. This was a beautiful way to become part of history, so below is the picture I went with.
Everything we go through in life leads to something bigger, and I like to think that this is just the beginning. Not just for my city, but for all of us. We get humble, and we get stronger everyday.
Congratulations Discovery Green on your 10 years!! Wishing on many more.
