I've lived here my whole life and Beth explains the things I've experienced the best.


Bethany makes even me, a native upstate New Yorker, finally proud to be a resident of New Jersey. She says it the best!!!!


You said everything you can ever do in new jersey and more! nice job!


fantastic essay!


WOW! your essay was amazing i loved it. it has informed me of many things that i didn't know and i have lived in nj all my life.


Nice description of our great state. Your essay captures the role our state has played in history.

Your essay is very good. I know your gonna win. NJ rocks my socks!


ah, i love your essay! It reminded me of the beautiful state we live in and that it has so much to offer. I learned a lot about New Jersey just from this small essay. I love the beach as well!


Nice job Kaitlyn! I some times forget how lucky I am to live in a state with so much to do. Thanks for the reminder, can't wait to go to the beach!


wow! i thought the essay was amazing. it was a real eye opener even for a jersey born jersey critic like myself. the fact that you melded your opinions with facts added another great level to the essay.

Kaitlyn, what a great essay! I'm so tired of hearing everyone bash NJ. While the thought of moving out of NJ has crossed our minds from time to time, we always come back to the fact that NJ will always be home and home is where we want to be.


Kaitlyn, your essay is amazing!! Great job, I learned a lot about NJ from it. Very nicely done!


This was an excellent essay - and chock full of information that would make anyone who doesn't live here WANT to live here. It made me think more about New Jersey - and how much I would miss it if I moved away. Great job!

Great job, Kaitlyn! Your enthusiasm for New Jersey is honest, and you include several notable facts to pique the interest of your reader. I was born in the Midwest but now live in New Jersey, and I feel even prouder to live here after reading your work!


Great essay Kaitlyn! Your so right about NJ. It's a great place to live and so much to do.
Good Luck I really enjoyed it.

Wow! You are an impressive writer, Kaitlyn! Good Work!
I moved to NJ 22 years ago. I had NO idea how wonderful NJ was when I first arrived. It really is a very pretty state with lots of opportunities. I liked all the things that you highlighted in your essay. Go, Go, Go Kaitlyn....Could be famous, could be a BIG success! :-)
