Juneau: Me and the City

Serendip Visitor's picture

My name is pretty bland- in fact I have the most common first name in the class of 2017. When I looked my last name up in the phonebook in second grade, I found 200 listings. So when I was born, my parents wanted to give me a more unique middle name. They chose Juneau, after the city in Alaska where my mom went to high school. It seemed like a perfect choice for an Esem about cities. I chose a picture from a trip to Juneau, with a bus in the foreground. I like the colors in the picture, and the misty mountains in the background. Public transit makes me think of cities, as well as my own trips downtown, often on my way to fun events. Busses are a way to access a city, as is this class.
