feel so lucky and proud to be born in the most beautiful
city in the world. San Francisco isn't only a city that knows how, it's a city that creates how. Yet, when I'm working in the financial
district or walking in a neighborhood, I sometimes feel
like a stranger in a strange land. It is rare when I meet
someone who is a native; but when I do, we always get a
kick out of talking about our San Franciscan roots.
usually strikes up with excitement as we try to discover
a common memory, high school, or person that each of us can
relate to in our past. Once there, we are suddenly enriched
by the camaraderie we have both discovered.
Several years ago, there was "an article" circulating around the internet entitled, "You know you are a native Sampenciscan if
you...". This article generated a lot of excitment...and enthusiasm as it routed
internet. As the interest levels escalated; and because of
my love for San Francisco, I decided to create the San
Francisco Native Jamboree. The event ran for 8 successful years and I enjoyed learning about so many people's stories. We have decided to focus on smaller events for the time being because putting on a Jamboree was like putting on a big wedding and after 8 years, it was time to focus on other things!
hope you enjoy and embrace the spirit of our efforts by engaging
in sharing San
Francisco memories and nostalgia, making new friends, attending one of our upcoming events.
