Anyone who has lived through their 20s will tell you it's a decade of intense turbulence and growth. For most of my twenties and some of my thirties, Philadelphia has been my home. But much more than that, this city has shaped me in ways I don't always recognize. Philadelphia is the place that inspired my love for cities and my desire to pursue a masters degree studying them. Philadelphia is the place where my heart first broke and I spent the better part of two years putting it back together. Philadelphia is the place I found my faith in God and the supernatural.
