I was born in Portland, Oregon! Although, I was raised mostly in Vancouver, WA just across the bridge from Oregon. When I started middle school, my mother and father had split up, and my mother lived in Oregon. So half of my time was spent in Portland, and some of the best times I ever had have been in that city. Most of my friends live there, but today I reside in Vancouver. I love Oregon for the views it has, the food it holds and the friends that I have there. I recommend 10/10 to visit, it's one of the best states.
