-Southwest Virginia means everything to me. I value the love and respect we have for each other, and the hard work we do to support our families. I like the fact that we Southwest Virginians are proud, but also not afraid to let our soft side show.
Here in the mountains—our home—we have our own unique art and culture, inspired by animals, wildflowers, beautiful sunny days, and rolling thunderstorms we can hear for miles. There's a beauty to this life that can stand out because of some good old-fashioned peace and quiet.
I admire the people of our area because we make the best of the cards we've been dealt in life. We have strength in numbers and resiliency of heart. We can do whatever we want to do—and be whatever we want to be—and nothing can hold us back.
These mountains mean home to me.
