Disclaimer Signature Geneva Castellanos
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I’m originally from the Rio Grande Valley. I moved to Austin in 2008 for college and never left. I enjoyed living in West Campus and Hyde Park, but when I decided to buy my home, I knew I wanted to be closer to the Hispanic community in 78744. I love supporting the local business and finding food that reminds me of home.
