NO PLACE LIKE L.A. IS OUR SERIES THAT ASKS L.A. TRANSPLANTS AND IMMIGRANTS: "WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU FELT THAT LOS ANGELES WAS TRULY HOME?"

This is the story of Brent Saunders in Grenada Hills.

I lived in San Francisco for ten years. 

I was one of those insufferable San Franciscans and hated how superficial Los Angeles seemed.

Moved here for work, and one year I was sent to Cincinnati for training.

As I was landing at LAX, I thought to myself, I'm home now.

And it just dawned on me, "Oh no! I'm an Angeleno now!"

TELL US YOUR OWN STORY, TOO. IF YOU'RE A TRANSPLANT OR IMMIGRANT, WHAT WAS THE MOMENT WHERE YOU THOUGHT TO YOURSELF, "L.A. FEELS LIKE HOME, NOW?"
