Needless to say, many students dream of moving into a big city. For these simple reasons, today, the Typical Student team prepared for you quite an unusual selection. Here are 7 students who really changed after they moved to a bigger city. #1 Moving to a city and really becoming myself allowed me to turn into a new and happier person
#2 Once I turned 21, I moved from my small Iowa hometown to Dallas, Texas. Living in a big city took me from emo kid in the cornfields to bougie "yaaasss queen" of the concrete jungle.
#3 I moved to LA at 18 and 100 pounds later, my life has changed for the better. Did I mention coming out?
#4 I left middle-of-nowhere Illinois for college and it was the best decision of my life. Moving to a bigger city enabled me to find the confidence to come out, push myself professionally, step up my personal style, and give me more opportunities than I could have ever imagined.
#5 Grew up in what is referred to as the “buckle of the Bible belt” west Texas. So yeah, I didn't tell people I was trans until I moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area with my fiancée. Best. Decision. Ever!
#6 I moved from a smaller town in Washington to Seattle for college. The thing about Seattle is that it's so big and so full of unique characters, that I felt like for the first time no one was really watching me. It gave me the confidence to be goofy wherever, dress however, and just be more of my genuine self out in the world.
#7 I grew up in Salt Lake City and always felt like the city and people were suffocating me. Now I’m 21 and living in Portland, Oregon. I feel free.
